Errantes, from Latin “the ones who wander,” focuses on topics in social and cultural anthropology. It features papers investigating intersections, hybridizations and border-crossings (or their impediment) of people, objects, practices, memories, ideas.

The journal favors ethnographic and theoretical contributions that focus on inequality and power, encounters and conflicts, marginality and subalternity, mobility and migration, resistance and creativity.

Furthermore, the journal aims at pushing anthropological debates outside their comfort zones, in order to experiment with alternative ethnographic forms and problematize the epistemological tools specific to the discipline. Errantes also wishes to enhance interdisciplinary collaborations and to promote the public dimension of anthropological knowledge.

Dossier Section (2021) [EXTENSION]: The Criminalization of Migratory Movements and Contemporary Global Criminal Networks

2021-06-07

For its 2021 launch issue, Errantes proposes to explore the themes of crime and criminalization in relation to people on the move and contemporary global criminal networks. We are looking for ethnographical and theoretical contributions that focus on practices and discourses (legal, social, enacted by state agents, NGOs, or associations) around migration and how they shape and are shaped by, imaginaries about a criminal migrant “Other” and by attempts to resist such criminalization process. Discussing crime in relation to migration will also allow us to look at transnational criminal groups, economies, and activities when they are defined as illegal and disguised as lawful (when legal activities would be impossible without illegal ones). The articles will follow the American Anthropological Association Style Guide (Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition), with a length range from 5,000–9,000 words (including abstract, notes, and references), should be submitted no later than September 1st, 2021 (due to a deadline extension).
