Anthropology

Editor in Chief | Area Editors | Articles and Contributors

As a discipline which examines humankind, from its beginnings millions of years ago to the present day, anthropology is a constantly changing and expanding discipline. Anthropology is typically divided into four subfields: social and cultural anthropology, archaeology, linguistic anthropology, and biological anthropology. Each field is further divided into its own subfields. These divisions are not without controversy, sometimes represented by the formation of completely separate academic departments on certain campuses, but it is important to highlight that anthropology represents one of the few disciplines where the humanities, sciences, and social sciences converge.

Oxford Bibliographies in Anthropology is an entirely new and unique type of reference tool that has been specially created to meet a great need among today’s students, scholars, and professionals. It offers more than other bibliography initiatives on- and offline by providing expert commentary to help students and scholars find, negotiate, and assess the large amount of information readily available to them. It facilitates research in a way that other guides cannot by providing direct links to online library catalogs and other online resources. Organizing the resource around discrete subject entries will allow for quick and easy navigation that users expect when working on screen.

 

Editor in Chief

John L. Jackson, Jr. is Dean of the School of Social Policy & Practice and Richard Perry University Professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Jackson’s books include Harlemworld: Doing Race and Class in Contemporary Black America (University of Chicago Press, 2001); Real Black: Adventures in Racial Sincerity (University of Chicago Press, 2005); Racial Paranoia: The Unintended Consequences of Political Correctness (Basic, 2008), Thin Description: Ethnography and the African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem (Harvard University Press, 2013), and (co-written with journalist Cora Daniels) Impolite Conversations: On Race, Politics, Sex, Money and Religion (Atria/Simon & Schuster, 2014). Jackson is also an award-winning filmmaker whose most recent ethnographic film is Bad Friday: Rastafari After Coral Gardens (Third World Newsreel, 2012). Much of Jackson’s work critically explores how film and other non-traditional or multi-modal formats can be most effectively utilized in specifically scholarly research. He is one of the founding members of CAMRA and PIVPE, two Penn-based initiatives organized around creating visual and performative research projects—and producing rigorous criteria for assessing them.
