About the Journal des anthropologues

The main aim of the Journal des Anthropologues is to encourage the distribution of recent anthropological work concerning the transformation of the contemporary world and the new research objects. Each issue is based on a comparative perspective, bringing together research in a variety of cultural areas. There is analysis of the discipline’s practices and evolution, also from pluri-disciplinary points of view. Careful attention is paid to epistemological aspects and fieldwork. With these directions in mind, the journal’s editorial committee has published works by well-established researchers as well as young researchers exploring new fields of enquiry.

Placing the religious in its subjective and global contexts is both to examine all of its articulations and its two constituent dimensions: an imaginary salvation deriving from a set and localized symbolic capital though now immediately globalised – and a line of flight for subjects confronted by increasingly difficult existential situations with few future prospects. This issue initially inspired by the growing number of attack in 2015/2016, holds these two poles in each particular case.

The digital sphere and globalised practices are shaped by the right to be oneself. They align religious orientation with sexual and ethnic orientations and they definitively transform universality into a sum of infinite singularities. The deeper and deeper entanglement of symbolic and economic markets constitutes the current framework of religious production.
