About the Journal

Formerly called "The Anthropology Student Journal", The Ethnograph was established by the UBC Anthropology Students' Association to allow undergraduate students the opportunity to publish exceptional individual research papers and essays in anthropology and archaeology. The Ethnograph has been running and expanding for several years and, now on its 7th volume, draws on an extensive editorial team who work individually with authors in the weeks prior to publication. This year The Ethnograph's faculty sponsor is Professor Amirpouyan Shiva, PhD. While lecturing in sociocultural anthropology at UBC, he specialises in linguistic and media anthropology, with an additional interest in the anthropology of science and technology.
