Anthropolitan is UCL Anthropology's magazine and blog, and is run by staff and students from the department. We publish the print magazine annually, in the summer term, and publish articles on the online blog weekly during term time throughout the year. Both the magazine and blog feature articles by undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as researchers and lecturers from the department.

In terms of content, we encourage submissions on a wide variety of topics and themes, reflecting the diversity of the department. The only rule is that articles should relate to anthropology - that is, human beings, society, and culture - in broad terms. Authors should aim for an accessible and journalistic - i.e. non-academic - style which should appeal to a wide audience. We have an open deadline for the blog, and send out a call for submissions for the magazine in the spring. Articles should be no more than 1,200 words in length, and we also encourage multimedia content (e.g. photos, videos, artwork, and so on).

Each year, we recruit students to help with the running of the blog as part of the Student Editor Committee (SEC). We are looking for writers, copyeditors, social media managers, and web designers - and, in general, anyone with a passion for journalism and publishing. Involvement in Anthropolitan doesn't take up much time, and is an excellent way to develop your writing and editing skills - and to begin your publishing career.

If you would like to get involved in the Student Editor Committee (SEC) - or if you have a submission or idea for an article - please email Dr Lewis Daly at l.daly@ucl.ac.uk.
