Sites: A journal of social anthropology and cultural studies

Sites: a journal of social anthropology and cultural studies is a peer reviewed journal dedicated to publishing scholarly papers which explore aspects of Pacific societies and cultures. We define the Pacific in its widest possible sense to include the Pacific Rim, Oceania, New Zealand and the diasporas of people outwards from these regions. We welcome original papers focused on empirical studies or theoretical, methodological or pedagogical topics which fall within this broad purview. Our journal is trans and multidisciplinary and we invite submissions from scholars from a diverse array of disciplinary traditions.
