About Anthropology Matters Journal


Anthropology Matters is the official postgraduate network of the Association of Social Anthropologists of the UK (the ASA), including the open-access peer-reviewed Anthropology Matters Journal and an email list alerting members to jobs, grants, conferences, and other relevant issues. More information about the email list and how to subscribe is available at the above Email List link. 

Anthropology Matters began in 1997 as a student-led research training seminar at SOAS entitled Ethnography at the Millennium. The research student community that grew from this seminar created a journal in 1999, renamed Anthropology Matters Journal in 2002, the same year that the ASA postgraduate network formed. 

The journal usually publishes two issues a year and submissions are welcome. Consonant with the aims of the Anthropology Matters initiative, the journal strongly encourages research-based submissions of 6000 – 8000 words that fall within the purview of social and cultural anthropology from postgraduate students and early career scholars.
