Anthropological Quarterly Journal

 

Published by the GW Department of Anthropology, Anthropological Quarterly is among the most highly respected anthropology publications in the United States. The refereed journal publishes scholarly articles, reviews and lists of recently published books in all areas of sociocultural anthropology. 

The quarterly was founded in 1921 by the Catholic University of America with the title Primitive Man and acquired by the GW Institute for Ethnographic Research in September 2001. The journal is co-edited by faculty members and occasionally publishes graduate student work alongside articles from external experts.
