Journal for the Anthropological Study of Human Movement

Journal for the Anthropological Study of Human Movement

Papers are invited from graduate students and professionals who are involved in scholarly
research on some system of human movement, or some aspect of its study in social and
cultural contexts. We welcome contributions from socio-cultural anthropology and related
disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, as well as interdisciplinary investigations.
Papers that provide theoretical and methodological insights are preferred over those that rely
on description alone. Reviews of publications of interest to the field are welcome, as are critical comments on the essays we publish. As a general rule, a paper should not exceed 6000 words
(1500 for reviews and commentaries, although 'review essays' can be longer). In all cases,
writers are asked to conform to the conventions for notes and references found in recent
Volumes of the Journal. While the editors maintain an overall copyright to protect material
published by JASHM, this is not exercised without an author's permission. Reprints are governed
by the original copyright. Also, our editorial policy allows for the expression of a diverse range of opinion and argument which do not necessarily reflect the views of the editors. Communications should be addressed to: The Editors Journal for the Anthropological Study of Human Movement [JASHM] Anthropology Department, 109 Davenport Hall University of Illinois 607 South Mathews Avenue, Urbana, IL 61801 Attention: Brenda Farnell (email:
