The description of the focus and intent of the journal is as follows:

Collaborative Anthropologies is a journal meant to engage the growing and ever-widening discussion of collaborative research and practice in anthropology and in closely related fields. Published annually, the journal:

  • facilitates dialogue about collaborative anthropologies, including but not limited to those between and among researchers and their interlocutors, anthropologists and other scholars/practitioners, academics and other professionals, universities and local communities, faculty and students;

  • embraces a special focus on the collaborative research between and among researchers and communities of informants/consultants/collaborators, but is by no means limited to this focus;

  • promotes discussion about new forms of collaborative research that are engendering new kinds of collaborative anthropologies;

  • charts new theoretical and methodological approaches, especially those that theorize collaboration and imagine new intellectual spaces for collaborative anthropologies;

  • invites essays that are descriptive as well as analytical/interpretive/exploratory;
    solicits works from all subfields of anthropology (and closely related disciplines);

  • encourages interdisciplinary inquiry into collaborative anthropologies, especially those that connect collaborative anthropologies with other modes of collaborative research practices;

  • seeks a diversity of perspectives on collaborative research, including those academic, applied, and pedagogic;

  • considers scholarship from single to multi-sited in scope and from all parts of the world; and

  • includes book/media/exhibit reviews that chronicle the creative and innovative use of collaboration in anthropology and closely related fields.
