Dialectical Anthropology is an international journal that seeks to invigorate discussion among left intellectuals by publishing peer-reviewed articles, editorials, letters, reports from the field, political exchanges, and book reviews that foster open debate through criticism, research and commentary from across the social sciences and humanities.
We provide a forum for work with a pronounced dialectical approach to social theory and political practice for scholars and activists working in Marxist and broadly political-economic traditions, and those who wish to be in dialogue or debate with these traditions. Since its founding by Stanley Diamond 1975, Dialectical Anthropology has been dedicated to the transformation of class society through internationalizing conversations about the stakes of contemporary crises and the means for social change. For three decades, the pages of the journal have provided space for comment, criticism, agreement, and disagreement about significant issues of our times.
Dialectical Anthropology is committed to reaching beyond an Anglophone readership via submissions, dialogue and active participation in languages other than English, and an editorial policy that promotes collaborations beyond the traditional concerns of Western academics.
