The purpose of this journal is to provide a venue for UNH students to publish and share their work with the university community and the general public. As a discipline, anthropology has numerous subfields, including archaeology, medical anthropology, applied anthropology, socio-cultural anthropology, visual anthropology, and socio-linguistics, among others. This is not a peer-reviewed journal, although in the future we might consider creating a panel of students majoring in anthropology to peer-review submitted work, prior to the editorial approval. The editorial board rotates annually and consists of two anthropologists, ideally representing different subfields (e.g., a socio-cultural anthropologist and an archaeologist).
We want to thank Carolyn Stolzenburg for her help and support in putting together this issue of Spectrum.
