Anthropology Reviews: Dissent & Cultural Politics

Anthropology Reviews: Dissent and Cultural Politics (ARDAC) ISSN 2041-1405 


The purpose of ARDAC is to produce an open access anthropology research-based review aimed at the academic community at large that analyses responses to cultural politics with reflective, incisive articles in textual and non-textual formats.

Anthropology Reviews: Dissent and Cultural Politics is published twice a year in February and October by Open Access. The journal is organised through submissions to the editor and an editorial board and it is available freely online as an open access anthropology publication.


Anthropology Reviews: Dissent and Cultural Politics is a European and international, open access anthropology journal that analyses how cultural innovation, transnational and political issues underpin the character of relationality of global issues. In the analysis of cultural politics, the journal is interested in social responses to the future of culture in the public domain in the age of globalisation and within the altermodern period that is emerging after postmodernity. The reviews aim to look at the political intersections between culture and globalisation, and specifically, the way in which human relations are mediated through political voice and cultural innovation.

The journal encourages broad, critical, speculative and experimental interventions in discussions concerning anthropology and cultural politics in Europe as well as cross-culturally with a particular emphasis on political voices and dissent, in any fields, from communication technologies to social media, political to popular movements, and from engagement and intervention in society to any broad topics on technologies and experiences of social engagement and relatedness.

The journal is inclusive of all types of submissions, working papers, research papers, pre peer-reviewed and reviewed publications, multimedia (including audio, video) and internet based data. The journal will be part of open access anthropology journals structured within a mediated website and forums.


We welcome submissions on any topic within anthropology that considers the remit of the journal and it is inclusive of the academic community at large.
