Teaching Anthropology

Teaching Anthropology (TA) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal dedicated to the teaching of anthropology. A journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute, TA promotes dialogue and reflection about anthropological pedagogies in schools, colleges and universities. Teaching sharpens our research questions and pushes forward disciplinary knowledge. It also opens possibilities for personal and professional transformation. Bringing together anthropological and educational ideas, the journal fosters a critical engagement with teaching practices and their role in developing our anthropological capacities. We also aim to stimulate scholarly discussions about the relationship between pedagogy and its social, institutional and political contexts.



New Editor


Teaching Anthropology will be relaunched in 2017 with a new international collective led by Dr Patrick Alexander at Oxford Brookes University. It will continue to publish high-quality research articles and teaching reflections, and also will welcome shorter contributions, responses and blogs.
