Editorial line


Horizontes Antropológicos is published thrice yearly by the Department of Post-Graduate Studies in Social Anthropology at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS). Initiated in 1995, it represents the Department's constant efforts to publish a high-quality academic journal of international reach. Each volume is organized around a theme, open to the plurality of interpretations and subjects of interest to anthropologists for the study of sociocultural phenomena. Each issue also includes a section called Open Space (Espaço Aberto), dedicated to the publication of cutting-edge works written by authors with acknowledged recognition among their peers as to the domain of the topic addressed, preferably from the invitation of the editors. The articles should be previously unedited and can be submitted in Portuguese, Spanish, French and English. Subject fields include anthropology, archeology and related areas. In general, articles should be presented to the consideration of the editors, who will then submit the material to external reviewers.
