The Swedish Journal of Anthropology – called kritisk etnografi (‘critical ethnography’) – aims to promote critical ethnographic voices and perspectives on the contemporary global situation. Today’s world is characterized by an unprecedented large number of people from different backgrounds on the move; escalating political and social tensions; growing forms of authoritarian backlashes undermining fundamental democratic achievements; and, at the same time, new social and cultural processes of multiculturalism, global development, social change and popular protest. In such contexts, the ambition of kritisk etnografi is to foster responsible scholarship with global scope, local relevance and public engagement.
The journal kritisk etnografi seeks to capture societal transformation and global change from multiple ethnographic voices and perspectives. It promotes new forms of societal and cultural engagements, critical reflections on the craft of ethnography, and collaborative forms of joint-authorship.
The journal is a peer-reviewed and truly open access publication, free of any charges: always, everywhere, and for everyone. It is an independent, non-profit, society publication that provides scholarly alternatives to mainstream for profit academic publishers. The full content of all issues and every article can be downloaded from the Swedish digital academic archive (DiVA). A record of issues and articles are available at Issues.
