etnofoor_logo_redTaking anthropology to be a hybrid science born of modernity, ETNOFOOR seeks to explore and to stretch the boundaries of the discipline as well as the limitations of modern scientific practices and representations. It scrutinizes current trends in anthropology, explores its margins, invites debate in anticipation of new developments and enriches the nature of ethnographic praxis. For argument and form, rhetoric and genre, ETNOFOOR offers an experimental and creative space to those who want to free themselves from conventional scientific harnesses. Each contribution receives individual attention, to render full freedom to courageous statements and style, in word, image, and lay-out.

The journal is currently commissioning submissions for a special issue on BORDERS. For more details, see: Call for Papers Etnofoor, on Borders.

The editors of ETNOFOOR invite all those who wish to reflect upon these or related issues to send an abstract of no more than 150 words to editors@etnofoor.nl before December 15, 2013. The deadline for authors of accepted abstracts to submit their full paper for consideration is February 28, 2014.
