Call for Papers: After Culture: Emergent Anthropologies (3/1/2006)
Papers are sought for the inaugural volume of a new peer-reviewed journal, “After Culture: Emergent Anthropologies.” The first issue is planned for release in September 2006, and thereafter will be published semiannually (in March and September) and made available free through the internet (URL forthcoming).
We are currently seeking article manuscripts which focus on the interactions between nature, culture and society, or are in the general thematic areas of science and technology studies or critical studies of medical knowledge and practice. Contributors are encouraged to employ any form of rigorous theoretical and methodological approach, not limited to ethnography, historiography and textual analysis.
Manuscripts should range between 8,000-10,000 words in length, be paginated, and bear the title and author’s name and affiliation on a cover page. Please also include a 200-250 word abstract, a list of keywords, and word count on the first page of the manuscript.
In addition to research articles and book reviews, we would like to include within our first volume short essays in response to the title of the journal. For example, what might it mean to live “after culture,” or to produce academic work without culture as an explanatory tool? Or, how is culture still relevant? Alternatively, responses to ideas of “emergence” and “anthropology” in its broadest sense are also welcome. These essays should range between 3,000-5,000 words.
All submissions may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. For the purposes of citation, please employ AAA citation practices, which are available at http://www.aaanet.org/pubs/style_guide.htm.
Send all inquiries to Matthew Wolf-Meyer, Managing Editor, at email@example.com.
