Opening fields of study, integrating new perspectives, shifting analyses for a critical anthropology of the present

Published both in print and on line, the Journal des Anthropologues, formerly the Bulletin de l'Association Française des Anthropologues, is published by the French Association of Anthropologists (AFA). It was founded in 1980 with the goal to promote this discipline and, specifically, all that it brings to the social, political and ideological's understanding of contemporaneous societies.

The Journal defends a comparatist perspective, open to the field analyses of related disciplines (sociology, psychoanalysis, political science, economics, etc.) and to the social analyses of alternative expressions (performing arts, images, etc.).

The different thematic dossiers and their respective calls for papers innovative research fields opening up new perspectives for the discipline alongside reflections about its progress. The sections “Research and Debate” ; “Anthropologies at present”; “Visual Anthropology”; “Echoes from here and elsewhere”; “Public Anthropology” are mostly devoted to methodological and epistemological considerations as well to evolutions in fieldwork and other procedures of exercising anthropology.

The AFA’s Journal des Anthropologues is supported by the Maison des Sciences de l'Homme Foundation, le Centre National du Livre, le CNRS and French Ministry of Culture and Communication.
