Anthropology News

Anthropology News (AN) is the American Anthropological Association’s (AAA) award-winning member magazine, published bimonthly in print and continually on its website.

 AN develops insightful, fresh anthropology stories for anthropologists and anyone with an interest in anthropology. It aims to champion engaging, incisive, anthropology writing and multimodal content from across the discipline. Think short-form magazine-style stories with scientific bite.

 Each issue of the print magazine (distributed to AAA members) is developed on a theme—often topics of general interest, current events, or discussions in the discipline—by the editor who works directly with authors. We invite contributions through calls for pitches and direct invitations.

 The Anthropology News website publishes stories from the print magazine and much more in the form of topical and timely content from individual contributors and AAA sections.  Follow this link to read recent columns by CAE members.

Please contact CAE’s contributing editor to Anthropology News, Tricia Niesz ( if you have an idea for an article, photo essay, video, cartoon, or other form of creative writing that addresses the CAE mission.
