Anthropological Yearbook of European Cultures relaunched in 2008 as the Anthropological Journal of European Cultures

Previously published as the Anthropological Yearbook of European Cultures

Published since 1990, AJEC engages with current debates and innovative research agendas addressing the social and cultural transformations of contemporary European societies. The Journal serves as an important forum for ethnographic research in and on Europe, which in this context is not defined narrowly as a geopolitical entity but rather as a meaningful cultural construction in people's lives, which both legitimates political power and calls forth practices of resistance and subversion. By presenting both new field studies and theoretical reflections on the history and politics of studying culture in Europe anthropologically, AJEC encompasses different academic traditions of engaging with its subject, from social and cultural anthropology to European ethnology and empirische Kulturwissenschaften.

Anthropological Journal of European Cultures was previously published as Anthropological Yearbook of European Cultures.
