Ask not what Anthropozine can do for you, ask what you can do for Anthropozine!
We are always looking for content for future issues of Anthropozine. Send us some of your stuff! If we don’t get to it in the next issue it might still appear in the following one. For us, basically anything goes, so you can take the following list as guidelines not gospel:
- Personal reflections on academic topics, current events
- Reviews of books, movies, museum installations, etc.
- Stories that relate personal experiences or observations
- Poetry and creative writing
- Artwork and Photography
Written works should be creative and engaging and should abstain from jargon, artistic works should be relevant to the issue theme and anthropology broadly construed. Bibliographies are not necessary unless you are including a direct quote in your piece. If so then use APA style in footnotes.
Generally we are looking to publish shorter works, including some that are very brief. If you have a longer piece consider trimming it down before submitting it. Suggested lengths: “Letters” – about 200 to 600 words; “Articles” – about 800 to 1500 words; “Features” – about 2000 to 2500 words.
Q. Can I submit my term paper, original research, or annotated bibliography?
A. Don’t send us the same thing you turned in to your professor. Write a new piece that tells the story of how you came to be interested in the topic or how your personal experience influenced your research choices.
Q. But, my work is a genealogical analysis of symbolic forms surrounding the problematic of political agency!
A. Please do your best to avoid jargon. And while it is necessary to properly site any work from which your are pulling direct quotes, your work does not otherwise need an extensive bibliography.
