FORUM FOR ANTHROPOLOGY AND CULTUREANTROPOLOGICHESKIJ FORUM
RUS | ENG
'Antropologicheskij forum' / 'Forum for Anthropology and Culture' is an interdisciplinary international journal for anthropology, cultural studies, and cultural history published by two of the leading academic institutions in St Petersburg, Peter the Great Museum of Anthropology and Ethnography (Kunstkamera), Russian Academy of Sciences, and the European University at St Petersburg, with the support of the European Humanities Research Centre, University of Oxford.
Our contributors and readers include anthropologists, archaeologists, folklorists, cultural and social historians, linguists, and museologists. The editorial board reflects this disciplinary spread, and includes scholars from USA, Britain, and France as well as from Russia.
The first issue of 'Antropologicheskij Forum' appeared in September 2004, creating a stir of interest and favourable comment. A review by a leading Russian anthropologist described it as 'a major event for Russian ethnography generally', and the sign of 'important and significant reforms' in the subject. All publications in the journal are peer-reviewed.
One of the main aims of the journal is to foster genuine dialogue between anthropology and cultural studies in Russia and elsewhere. We regularly publish original work by scholars from outside Russia. Four issues a year are published in Russian (in March, June, September, and December). An English-language edition 'Forum for Anthropology anf Culture', containing selected material from all of the issues, comes out each winter. The English-language version is reduced; on the site you can find summaries of all materials published in Russian issues. This makes outstanding work by Russian specialists in anthropology and culture available to a non-Russian audience.
Contents of the Journal
The Reviews section, comprising detailed discussions of recently-published monographs and collections, reflects the journal's commitment to international dialogue: it has recently covered material published in German and French, as well as in Russian and English. Other regular sections include Conference Reports, and Personalia (e.g. obituaries, interviews with leading Russian and non-Russian scholars).
