Kroeber Anthropological Society Papers
Over the last fifty years, the Kroeber Anthropological Society Papers has evolved into a semi-annual volume with considerable international readership. We publish articles in the general field of anthropology (and all its subdisciplines) and neighboring fields which are of theoretical and/or practical interest. We remain particularly committed to publishing the work of students and junior scholars.
The KAS began hosting annual meetings in May 1957. These meetings have taken many forms over the years: some have included papers representing the spectrum of anthropological interests, others have focused closely on specific topics. Several meetings have been held to honor the scholarship of retiring anthropologists, and one has taken the form of an Ethnographic Film Festival. The most recent KAS conference, "Translocalities: Borders, Boundaries, and the Making of Sites," was held April 2003. In addition to its printed journal, KAS is also now a free, open-access scholarly journal (Fall 2009).
Both the journal and conferences are designed and implemented by graduate students in the Department of Anthropology at UC Berkeley, with support from faculty and campus organizations, such as the Graduate Assembly. While KAS typically has a senior faculty advisor from the UC Berkeley Anthropology Department, we remain an autonomous student institution that is financially independent from the department. All graduate students in the UCB Anthropology Department and the Joint UCB-UCSF Medical Anthropology Program are eligible to become members of the KAS.
Issue 101The Kroeber Anthropological Society Papers’ 101st issue draws on our discipline’s wide-ranging subfields to constitute a general issue. Current anthropology focuses on a broad spectrum of topics, and this issue reflects this diversity of current research, ranging from the investigation of political rituals to the ways that communities interact with and form the spaces in which they are found.

Issues 99/100: Anthropology Revisited As we begin 2011, the practice of anthropology continues to shift alongside the ever-changing worlds around it. The emergence of new technologies, revamped methodologies, and multiple movements in the last decade are just a few of the factors which alter the scope – and focus – of anthropological work.
This issue focuses on the past inventions and future innovations of the discipline in the form of theoretical shifts, reframing categories, not-yet histories, and methodological transformations - a look back to what's been left out and what's yet to emerge.
