Jason Baird's picture

Museum Anthropology Review has just published a new double issue--volume 14, numbers 1-2--that can be consulted online at This is the first issue of MAR to be published by Indiana University Press. The Press is working hard to enhance MAR and the new double issue features a new design.

At the heart of the issue is a paper on the Greater Cleveland Ethnographic Museum by Tim Lloyd and a monograph-length study of Henna artistry in Jaipur India by Jessica Evans Jain. An editorial discussing recent changes in the journal and a review by Kristin Otto of the edited volume Repair Work Ethnographies round out the issue.

MAR works to advance research and professional practice within the diverse, international fields of museum anthropology, museum-based folklore studies, and material culture studies and to foster communication within and between them. The journal’s founding commitment to open access publishing remains rooted in concerns for equity, inclusion, and the specific interests of the varied communities with whom scholars in these fields work.

As discussed in the editorial published in the new issue, MAR is actively seeking submissions for future volumes, with an emphasis on project reports and full articles. Information on preparing submissions is available on the MAR website.
