Journal for the Anthropology of North America


Welcome to the Journal for the Anthropology of North America (JANA), formerly North American Dialogue.

JANA is the peer-reviewed publication of the Society for the Anthropology of North America. We publish research that fosters dialogue about North America and its far-reaching effects. JANA is a forum for North Americanist scholars, activists, and practitioners to disclose findings, raise issues, describe fieldwork, and offer current political and theoretical analyses.

In addition to scholarly articles, film and book reviews, JANA offers two novel publication formats. “Snapshots” are image-based short essays documenting key moments in contributors’ fieldwork. “Coming To Terms” is a lexicon-in-progress of language critical to our work as anthropologists in order to provoke further dialogue & reflection.

JANA publishes two issues per year, in the spring and fall. Members of the Society for the Anthropology of North America receive JANA as a benefit of their membership. Please visit http://sananet.org to learn about becoming a member.
