About Field Notes
Field Notes: A Journal of Collegiate Anthropology is a peer reviewed, student-run anthropology journal recognized by the Library of Congress. Founded in 2009 by graduate students of the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee (UWM), Department of Anthropology, our mission is to provide a publication platform for graduate and undergraduate students of all disciplines who produce original academic writing that is anthropological in nature. This mission is based on a core principle on which Field Notes: A Journal of Collegiate Anthropology was founded:
The recognition that the research conducted by students throughout the course of their undergraduate and graduate education is a valuable resource.
Therefore, Field Notes exists to give students a forum to showcase original, high quality scholarship. An additional goal of our journal is to provide experience with the peer review and editorial process and as such, Field Notes is reviewed, edited, and published entirely by students of anthropology and affiliated disciplines. Field Notes: A Journal of Collegiate Anthropology publishes one volume each year in both digital format and hardcopy. We accept all submissions of an anthropological nature provided they meet the parameters of one of six publication types listed in the Guidelines for Contributors. Field Notes is sponsored by the Anthropology Student Union, a student-run, non-profit organization designed to serve the needs and interests of UWM anthropology undergraduate and graduate students and alumni.
