Forum for Anthropology and Culture
Forum Anthropol Cult
Antropologicheskii forum was established by the 'Peter the Great Museum of Anthropology and Ethnography' (Kunstkamera), and the European University, in St Petersburg. The English language edition contains selected material from both of the Russian issues, and has been prepared with the help of The European Humanities Research Centre, University of Oxford. Antropologicheskii forum is interdisciplinary, with participation from a range of different specialists working in social and cultural anthropology, archaeology, folklore, cultural and social history, linguistics, and museology. Its content, like the membership of the Editorial Board, is international in character, and discussions and selected articles are published in English and Russian. Each issue is centred round an exchange of views about topics of current interest. The intention is that the journal should facilitate genuine dialogue between specialists working in Russia, and in the Russian field, and those working elsewhere and in other areas. At the same time, the journal publishes first-class work in the various different areas covered by the journal's remit, including studies based on fieldwork as well as analyses of written and printed sources, discussions of theoretical and methodological issues, and publications of manuscripts and of texts collected during expeditions. The range of material included is wide; the defining characteristic of the journal is a capacity to think beyond national frontiers in terms of interpretive principles and methodological strategies, and to address issues such as the relationship between nationalism and anthropology and folklore in an informed and critical way.
