We are a collective of curated writings and writers focused on the themes of participant observation, personal ethnography, and humans in our unique environs.

We love the fundamental business of being humanesque. Issues of identity, culture, belonging or lack, vulnerability, collectivism, the body, ritual–anthropological subjects from a generalist’s view, or, cultural moments from a messy, personal perspective. Tightly snuggled with visuals for each feature, we publish in collected issues and individual articles: ethnography & essays, experiential narratives, fiction & poetry, visuals, conceptual work, and genre-bending, from voices in the literary field, the humanities, and the sciences.

We embrace a broad subject matter, in the name of ‘what it is to be / feel / resemble — or not — that which is human.’

We are, each of us, anthropoids.
