Museum Anthropology Journal

muanMuseum Anthropology is published by the Council for Museum Anthropology (CMA), a section of the American Anthropological Association. The journal is published in partnership with Wiley-Blackwell Publishers, through the publications program of the American Anthropological Association. Members of the Council for Museum Anthropology receive the journal as a members benefit and the journal receives support from the dues for section membership. The journal is currently edited by Lea McChesney (Curator of Ethnology, Maxwell Museum of Anthropology).

Museum Anthropology seeks to be a leading voice for scholarly research on the collection, interpretation, and representation of the material world. Through critical articles, provocative commentaries, and thoughtful reviews, this peer-reviewed journal aspires to cultivate vibrant dialogues that reflect the global and trans-disciplinary work of museums. Situated at the intersection of practice and theory, Museum Anthropology advances our knowledge of the ways in which material objects are intertwined with living histories of cultural display, economics, socio-politics, law, memory, ethics, colonialism, conservation, and public education.
