CFP: After Culture: Emergent Anthropologies (3/1/06; journal issue)
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
All submissions may be sent to after.culture_at_gmail.com. For the
purposes of citation, please employ AAA citation practices, which are
available at http://www.aaanet.org/pubs/style_guide.htm.
