Anthropology and its Publics

With the help of a group of graduate students from NYU, CUNY, and elsewhere, a print and web based magazine called Anthropology Now is being published under the auspices of the IHPK by Paradigm Publishers. The Wenner-Gren Foundation has provided grant support. Anthropology Now is committed to claiming a public voice for anthropology. Through its field research and in-depth, holistic analysis, anthropology presents an oblique perspective on mainstream common sense. By challenging taken for granted “truths,” anthropology can enrich public understandings of the world.
