Senior Lecturer in Social Anthropology, Dr Judith Bovensiepen, has recently been appointed as part of the editorial board of the academic journal Social Analysis alongside Professor Martin Hollbraad (University College London) and Dr Hans Steinmüller (London School of Economics).
Alongside writing an inaugural editorial for the next issue, announcing their appointment and outlining their approach to the journal, they have issued a call for proposals to feature in an upcoming Special Issue, of which the journal publishes two a year.
Social Analysis is an international peer-reviewed journal devoted to exploring the analytical potentials of anthropological research. It encourages contributions grounded in original empirical research that critically probe established paradigms of social and cultural analysis. The journal expresses the best that anthropology has to offer by exploring, in original ways, the relationship between ethnographic materials and theoretical insight. By forging creative and critical engagements with cultural, political, and social processes, it also opens new avenues of communication between anthropology and the humanities as well as other social sciences.
The journal publishes four issues per year, including regular Special Issues on particular themes. Dr Bovensiepen and her co-editors welcome individual articles that focus on diverse topics and regions, reflect varied theoretical approaches and methods, and aim to appeal widely within anthropology and beyond.
Social Analysis is published and distributed in print and online by Berghahn Journals. It is also a part of the Berghahn Open Anthro subscribe-to-open initiative, a pilot aiming to convert 13 Anthropology journals to full Open Access on an on-going and sustainable basis.
