Journal Journal of Social Archaeology

Aim & Scope

The Journal of Social Archaeology is a fully peer reviewed international journal that promotes interdisciplinary research focused on social approaches in archaeology, opening up new debates and areas of exploration. It engages with and contributes to theoretical developments from other related disciplines such as feminism, queer theory, postcolonialism, social geography, literary theory, politics, anthropology, cognitive studies and behavioural science. It is explicitly global in outlook with temporal parameters from prehistory to recent periods. As well as promoting innovative social interpretations of the past, it also encourages an exploration of contemporary politics and heritage issues. The editorial board is drawn from archaeology and the social sciences and submissions should reflect that interdisciplinary engagement. Established scholars from a variety of fields are asked to comment on submissions where relevant, bringing archaeology to a wider forum in the process. The journal also engages with contemporary perspectives on antiquity, linking past and present, the local and the global. The journal covers a full range of social archaeology in independent and themed issues. Relevant topics include social life; identity issues such as gender, sexuality, ethnicity, class; the body; material culture; landscape; time; aesthetics; sociopolitics; postcolonialism; representation; mortuary analysis; ritual; household studies, and social memory.
