Southern Anthropologist

Southern Anthropologist

Southern Anthropologist (ISSN: 1554-4133) is the peer-reviewed journal of the Southern Anthropological Society.  The editors welcome essays and book and film reviews that broaden anthropological knowledge of all subdisciplines in anthropology and their applied forms.

A single edition of the Southern Anthropologist will be out at the end of the year with a major section on using digital media in teaching anthropology. The expectation is to return to a twice-a-year format in 2013.
