American Anthropologist is the flagship journal of the American Anthropological Association, reaching well over 12,000 readers with each issue. The journal advances the association’s mission through publishing articles that add to, integrate, synthesize, and interpret anthropological knowledge; commentaries and essays on issues of importance to the discipline; and reviews of books, films, sound recordings, and exhibits.

On its website, the journal provides supplementary material for research articles along with interviews, podcasts, forums, and teaching resources. We are a proud partner of SAPIENS and its goal of bringing anthropology to broader publics.
