About the Journal

The journal of the Association for Political and Legal Anthropology (APLA), PoLAR: Political and Legal Anthropology Review is devoted to the anthropology of law and politics, most broadly conceived. This innovative interdisciplinary publication features articles on such issues as nationalism, citizenship, political and legal processes, the state, civil society, colonialism, postcolonial public spheres, multiculturalism, and media politics. It publishes work that is distinguished by its innovative definition of problems, ethnographic orientation, or theoretical outlook. We welcome submissions of manuscripts between 4,000 and 8,000 words in length.
