Social Anthropology/Antropologie Sociale

Publicat per l'European Association of Social Anthropologists

Edited by Dorle Drackle and Helena Wulff

Social Anthropology/Anthropologie Sociale is the acclaimed journal of the European Association of Social Anthropologists, the major professional organisation for anthropologists in Europe. While European in profile, this leading journal has a global scope. It publishes key contributions by both established and up-and-coming anthropologists. As part of the intellectual vitality of the journal, it also features an exciting Debate in every issue, an important Review Essay which discusses outstanding books in adjoining disciplines or in public debate from an anthropological point of view, and a thriving Book Reviews Section.

The newly introduced Debates take place between two anthropologists over a current issue formulated as a Question:

A cosmopolitan turn or return?
Nigel Rapport and Ronald Stade

How short can fieldwork be?
