About the Journal

Published since 1990, Anthropological Journal of European Cultures (AJEC) engages with current debates and innovative research agendas addressing the social and cultural transformations of contemporary European societies. The journal serves as an important forum for ethnographic research in and on Europe, which in this context is not defined narrowly as a geopolitical entity but rather as a meaningful cultural construction in people's lives, which both legitimates political power and calls forth practices of resistance and subversion.


By presenting both new field studies and theoretical reflections on the history and politics of studying culture in Europe anthropologically, AJEC encompasses different academic traditions of engaging with its subject, from social and cultural anthropology to European ethnology and Empirische Kulturwissenschaft.


Open Access

AJEC is part of the Berghahn Open Anthro subscribe-to-open initiative (BOA-S2O), converting thirteen anthropology journals to full Open Access on sustainable basis. All contributions to the journal will be published Open Access without the need for authors or their funders to pay an APC (Article Processing Cost) or any other fee. Learn more at:
