Inclusive Anthropologies

Series Editors: Pei-Lin Yu ( and  Nicole Herzog (

This series is intended to serve as a platform to present and celebrate diverse knowledge in anthropology from a complex mosaic of voices. Projects in archaeology, ethnology, ethnobiology, biological anthropology, and paleoecology as it pertains to human behavior are especially welcome. We seek voices that are not often well-represented in the academic literature and provide for more inclusivity and insight in our anthropological understanding of past communities and societies. We are specifically interested in manuscripts that focus on work pertaining to underreported groups, which might include but are not limited to indigenous communities, ethnic communities, women and children, and captive and migrant groups. Geographic coverage is focused on the Americas, with all time periods for investigation welcome.
