After Culture is currently seeking graduate students and faculty to become members of its editorial collective.
After Culture is a journal in anthropology, cultural studies, sociology, geography, and interdisciplinary studies of culture, broadly construed. After Culture’s mandate is to promote experimental forms of academic scholarship, both in content and form, as well as to work with scholars on developing new modes of scholarly presentation. After Culture provides anthropologists, and other scholars concerned with “culture” and its vagaries, with a space in which to celebrate and reconceive the study of culture and its possibilities. The name of the journal serves as an invitation to consider what comes next, what futures await anthropology and the study of culture, and how these futures might be articulated and enacted. After Culture is thus a space for the thinking and rethinking of futures, of emergences and resurgences.
As an online journal, we are able to include scholarly work that moves beyond the material boundaries of print journals, and as such, we hope to expand academic forms of representation and work. After Culture is currently interested in the following kinds of scholarly contributions:
After Culture is edited by an international editorial collective of graduate students in anthropology and cultural studies; with the support of faculty, the editorial collective solicits manuscripts, reviews articles, arranges issues for publication, and hosts occasional workshops. Such an arrangement of interdisciplinary and international interests allows After Culture to constantly evolve; similarly, the editorial collective accepts new members on a rolling basis, allowing for innovative ideas and approaches in the journal's emphases.
The editorial structure of the journal is comprised of an Editorial Board made up of graduate students who serve renewable three-year terms and who adopt the majority of the peer-review responsibilities as well as the formulation of editorial policies. The Editorial Advisory Board is comprised of established scholars and assists with the peer-review process and advises the Editorial Board on policy. Editorial Advisory Board members are appointed to renewable five-year terms. Graduate students who have served on the Editorial Board, upon completion of their graduate studies, are invited to matriculate to the Editorial Advisory Board. These two arms are collectively referred to as the Editorial Collective, and ideally will comprise 30-40 individuals from across disciplines, locales, and professional status.
