Anthropological Forum welcomes papers in anthropology and comparative sociology that present and discuss ethnographic material, or that engage with methodological and theoretical issues. The journal publishes both articles by accomplished scholars and articles from emerging junior scholars. In the latter case, the editors expect innovative discussions of ethnographic material.
