Anthropoetics Journal of Generative Anthropology

About Anthropoetics

Anthropoetics, founded in 1995 as UCLA’s first Open Access journal, is devoted to Generative Anthropology, which studies the works of human culture on the hypothesis that language, religion, art, and all things specifically human can be traced to a unique scene of origin. The Chronicles of Love & Resentment have been available since 1995 and number nearly 600.

Follow the GABlog: Generative Anthropology in the Public Sphere, keep up with us on Twitter, and visit us on Facebook. A bibliography of Generative Anthropology can be found at the Anthropoetics Library Thing page.

Our twelfth annual Generative Anthropology Summer Conference was held at the Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski University, Warsaw, Poland, on June 21-23, 2018. We are planning to hold the 2019 conference in New York City.

Our eleventh annual GASC was held at the University of Stockholm, Sweden, in June 2017. The tenth annual 2016 Conference was held at the Kinjo Gakuin University in Nagoya, Japan, the 2015 GASC in High Point, NC, and the 2014 GASC at the University of Victoria, British Columbia. The GASC returned in 2013 to the birthplace of GA, UCLA’s Royce Hall; and the 2012 GASC was held in Tokyo jointly with COV&R, following up on the efforts of late GA stalwart Herbert Plutschow.

The Generative Anthropology Society and Conference  is our membership organization. It supports GA activities such as the GABlog and the GAlist, and particularly our ongoing conference series. Visit the Society home page and become a member here.
