Volume theme: Environmental anthropology
The Boletín de Antropología, published by the Universidad de Antioquia, is soliciting articles for its volume number 48 which will be published in the second semester of 2014. For this volume we are looking for articles related to the field of environmental anthropology that are the result of research projects, state of art studies, or bibliographic reviews. This could include such topics as: ethno-sciences that concern the knowledge, beliefs and practices that ethnic groups or local communities hold regarding their natural environment; studies about conflict between property rights and the use of natural resources; reflections regarding the relationships between environmental authorities and ethnic groups in protected areas; analysis of social and environmental impacts of megaprojects; studies about the vulnerability of rural populations and their adaptations to climate change; evaluations of experiences in risk and disaster management that explicitly incorporate anthropological perspectives. We are also interested in archeological research that emphasizes processes of the appropriation and transformation of nature and their impact of social life, and studies that include within their analysis paleo-ecological approaches.
The Boletín de Antropología publishes original articles in English, French Portuguese and Spanish. It prefers articles that have not been published in any other format—print or electronic. In the latter case, preliminary versions distributed in electronic format for open discussion would be considered published. The editorial committee should be informed of any rewritten or actualized text that has been published elsewhere, and the text should include a footnote explaining what is new or different from the original published text.
Manuscripts should be sent no later than July 7th, 2014 to the email address:email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. The length of the text should be between 7.000 and 10.000 words, double space, and a font size of 12 in Times New Roman. Authors should send two versions of the manuscript. The first should include: the complete names of the author or authors, their institutional affiliations and emails. The second should eliminate these references and any other reference in the text that could indicate to the evaluators who the authors are. The second text should be marked as the text for evaluation. All of the articles must include, in both English and Spanish, the title, key words and an abstract with a maximum of 100 words.
