Focus and Scope

The Unfamiliar is a student-run anthropological journal based at the University of Edinburgh. We are dedicated to publishing a wide variety of material, featuring not only academically informed articles and book reviews but creative work such as poetry, photographic essays, and audio-visual projects. Our emphasis is on integrating creative and visual work, and our publishing and editorial policies reflect our commitment to make anthropology more widely accessible. We believe that anthropology should no longer be read and appreciated solely by anthropologists, but benefit broader audiences as well.
