The Asia Pacific Journal of Anthropology - Vol 3:1 now available
The Asia Pacific Journal of Anthropology (TAPJA) is one of five prestigious anthropology journals being produced in Australia. Among such company however, TAPJA is unique as it reflects the vigour and diversity of anthropology studied at The Australian National University (ANU). Formerly Canberra Anthropology, TAPJA now continues a 25 year tradition by publishing noteworthy research into social and cultural anthropology as it has for past contributors including George Marcus, Deborah Bird Rose, Nicholas Thomas, Marilyn Strathern, James Fox and Michael Jackson.
Editors, Kathy Robinson and Patrick Guinness, invite prospective contributors to publish in their reinvigorated TAPJA. Besides ANU-focused research, they also accept papers for peer review on diverse theoretical issues and disciplinary questions from regions other than the Asia Pacific.
TAPJA 3:1 is now available and features Donald Tuzin’s 2001 Anthony Forge Memorial Lecture on ‘Art, ritual, and the crafting of illusion’, along with articles by:
Tom Boellstorff - looking at ethnolocality in an Indonesian context
Bill Maurer - on chrysography, currency and counterfeiting
Anton Ploeg - dealing with the term ‘Papoea’ in Dutch colonial discourse
Andrea Whittaker - on heart disease, risk and identity in an Australian suburb
Anna Paini - on Pacific Islanders & work in the sugar-cane fields of Queensland
An extensive book review section also features, and the forthcoming TAPJA 3:2 is a special issue on applied anthropology.
