About

The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Anthropology (CEA) is a teaching and learning resource hosted at the University of Cambridge (you can find our privacy policy here). Its goal is to facilitate access to anthropological knowledge for experts and non-experts worldwide. The CEA will not aspire to constitute a new canon of conclusive anthropological knowledge. Instead, it is meant as a continuously growing introductory resource for all those who would like to familiarize themselves with particular subjects of interest and with the discipline of Social Anthropology more broadly. All entries are peer-reviewed by leading academics, making the CEA one of the most reliable resources for anthropological knowledge on the web.

The CEA is part of a growing movement for open access Anthropology. It is based on the firm conviction that anthropological knowledge must be shared between academics and with the general public in order to deal with the fundamental challenges of our time. We therefore actively encourage submissions from scholars around the globe, and we include entries on contemporary topics such as climate change, migration, and finance as well as entries about long-established subjects such as kinship and ritual.
