Description：The Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute is the principal journal of the oldest anthropological organization in the world. International in scope, we publish papers aimed at a broad anthropological readership, from all areas of the discipline including social anthropology, linguistic anthropology, biological anthropology, and archaeology. We also publish work from other disciplines, where these relate to anthropology’s core interests and take forward debates in these areas. Papers in the JRAI should always be of broad anthropological interest and relevance. While we encourage submissions that are empirically based and regionally contextualised, it is important that the broader conceptual contribution is made clear. We are keen to promote work that opens up dialogue between the traditional sub-disciplines of anthropology and that explores the intersections with sister disciplines. We also encourage engagement with those voices within and beyond the discipline which have often been marginalised from the mainstream canon of Anglophone scholarship.
