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 over 800.

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.

The Generative Anthropology Summer Conference (GASC) has been held annually since 2007, with the exception of 2020. The 2024 conference will be held in Tokyo. The conference website also contains links to information about all previous conferences.

Although the 2020 conference at Bar-Ilan University, Israel was regrettably cancelled because of the coronavirus, the 2021 conference was held under the same sponsorship via Zoom on June 14-16.
