About the journal
The purpose of the journal is to provide a venue for UNH students to publish and share their work with the university community and the general public. We are looking for exemplary scholarship produced by UNH students with a focus in anthropology. As a discipline, anthropology has numerous subfields, including archaeology, medical anthropology, applied anthropology, socio-cultural anthropology, visual anthropology, and socio-linguistics, among others. We encourage submissions from all subfields, but will also consider interdisciplinary work.
We hope that this journal is a venue where the students also can receive constructive feedback on their projects, exchange ideas, and share innovative approaches, techniques, study areas, and media for doing, producing, and representing anthropological projects. 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 will rotate annually and will consist of two anthropologists, ideally representing different subfields (e.g., a socio-cultural anthropologist and an archaeologist).
Call for submissions
Two of our faculty members from the Department of Anthropology will serve as the chief co-editors of the journal. Both students and faculty members are encouraged to begin thinking about possible submissions; these could be produced during the fall semester (2013).
In order to be considered for publication, all scholarly works MUST be nominated by a faculty member from UNH or another accredited university. These works should include ORIGINAL and challenging research that can be represented through various media not limited to research paper. We are very much interested in the works that explore, challenge, and address existing social issues; use innovative ways of combining existing methods and theories to describe and explain current or historical social phenomena; and challenge existing stories about history and different ways of being human.
The deadline for submission of work is May 31, 2013. Scholarly papers should be NO MORE than 4,000 words, including all text, figures, and bibliography. We will also accept short ethnographic films of NO MORE than 10 min (uploaded on youtube.com or otherwise), abridged versions of senior theses, short reports or images relating to ethnographic and archeological findings, photo-essays, and other creative projects representing various subfields of anthropology. Submitted work that is not a written research paper MUST be accompanied by a short essay of no more than 1, 000 words explaining the project. All written work must comply with the formatting and requirements of the AAA style-guide (http://www.aaanet.org/publications/style_guide.pdf).
All submissions must be original and/or comply with copyright laws (obtaining necessary permits and releases is the submitter’s responsibility).
