Issue 98: The University in Crisis

Over the course of the fall semester of 2009, UC campuses responded to the budget crisis with protests that ranged from rallies, marches, teach-ins, sit-outs, to occupation of campus buildings. This special issue of the Kroeber Anthropological Society Journal brings together faculty and undergraduate student voices from spoken protest to print.

Issues 99/100: Anthropology Revisited

As we begin 2011, the practice of anthropology continues to shift alongside the ever-changing worlds around it. The emergence of new technologies, revamped methodologies, and multiple movements in the last decade are just a few of the factors which alter the scope – and focus – of anthropological work.

This issue focuses on the past inventions and future innovations of the discipline in the form of theoretical shifts, reframing categories, not-yet histories, and methodological transformations - a look back to what's been left out and what's yet to emerge.

Issue 101

The Kroeber Anthropological Society Papers’ 101st issue draws on our discipline’s wide-ranging subfields to constitute a general issue. Current anthropology focuses on a broad spectrum of topics, and this issue reflects this diversity of current research, ranging from the investigation of political rituals to the ways that communities interact with and form the spaces in which they are found.

Issues 102/103

The Kroeber Anthropological Society Papers’ 102nd issue collects lectures presented at the Anthropology in the World Symposium, held in March 2012 to celebrate Laura Nader's fiftieth anniversary teaching anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley. The assembled lectures focus not simply on her own work or accomplishments, but rather on the topics Professor Nader has dedicated her career to studying: controlling processes, energy, harmony ideologies, civil liberty, the rule of law, and the unique and critical insights gained from a comparative perspective. In the multifield tradition of anthropology, Volume 103 collects a diverse range of papers to consistute a general issue.
