Call for Papers: Popular Anthropology Magazine
Popular Anthropology is a quarterly, interdisciplinary magazine. Published online and free to the general public, Popular Anthropology magazine is interested in providing knowledgeable articles on just about every subject available.

One of the biggest problems existing between academia and the public is not the lack of communication, but the inability to use a common language understood by all. Scholars will often use terminology that is particular to their field; language that scholars in other fields and the public might not use themselves. At Popular Anthropology we do not underestimate the public. However, we do expect authors to explain concepts and theories in a way that is plain and easy for everyone to understand.

The editorial board at Popular Anthropology looks forward to receiving articles and reviews from members of the academic community, including working professionals, professors, graduate students, and undergraduates from any discipline, as well as from freelance writers.

Please see our Writer's Guidelines at for more details.
