Founded in 1953, Revista de Antropologia is a biannual publication of the Department of Anthropology of the Faculty of Philosophy, Letters and Human Sciences of the University of São Paulo.

Its objective is to publish unpublished articles, both national and international, that present research results or essays of a theoretical-methodological nature, providing readers with an always up-to-date panorama of reflection in the country and abroad.

It seeks to contemplate anthropology in its different branches, as well as to bring to the debate certain interfaces with similar disciplines.

Articles can be sent at any time of the year, in continuous flow. Thematic dossier proposals are also evaluated.

The Revista de Antropologia is indexed in the Social Sciences Index / IUPERJ / RJ and Hispanic American Periodicals Index, and receives support from CNPq and SIBI / USP.

The rules for submitting articles can be checked on the USP's magazine portal and on ScieLo.

The historical series of Revista de Antropologia can be found on JSTOR.


Anthropology Encyclopedia is, since the beginning, a working tool. As a result of the partnership between students and professors at USP's Department of Anthropology, she was born in the classroom, fueled by exchanges and debates that took place within the regular graduate courses. The project was expanded, overflowing the first spaces, although faithful to the spirit that constituted it; spirit marked by reciprocal experimentation and learning, which defined, day by day, the profile and contents of the work. So the name of baptism ("Encyclopedia") should not give the illusion of wholeness or completeness. On the contrary, it is a work in permanent constitution, whose destinies will be traced according to the joint research and reflections of teachers and students. If it deviates from the idea of ​​integrality that marks the encyclopedic project in its origin, it retains the character of collective collaboration, hence the decision to keep the designation.

The Encyclopedia of Anthropology is composed of entries, signed, ordered alphabetically, and which are classified by author, work, concept, currents, subfields and institutions. Deliberately synthetic and presented in accessible language, the entries aim to function as guidance guides, in order to allow any and all interested parties to contact formulations, works and authors dear to anthropological reflection. Work and training tool for those who sign the texts, E A also wants to act as a research and learning tool for the reader, who besides being able to browse the different published texts, has access to a supporting bibliography that will allow him to embark on new crops, if you wish.
