Anthropology News (AN) is the official news source and record of the American Anthropological Association. It is a news source of anthropology for and by AAA members. AN staff provide a wide range of support to keep it fresh, on time and high quality. We welcome a great diversity in ideas, opinions, debates and research among anthropologists, and believe all of those should be celebrated in AN.
Amy Goldenberg (AN
Managing Editor) manages the overall AN
content, both in print and online. She develops regular thematic series and is responsible for the scheduling and reviewing of AN
content. Amy works with over 47 contributing editors who provide monthly columns or, if they choose, more columns. Thanks to her love of photography, she also manages the AAA photo contest. Amy completed her PhD in folklore from Indiana University in 2004. Her dissertation on Polish amber was quite different from her MA thesis about a cross-dressing heroine from Russian epic literature. She can be reached at agoldenberg[at]aaanet.org.
Emilia Guevara (AN
Digital Editorial Assistant) provides extensive support for anthropology-news.org. She is the main contact for the AN
Opinion columnists and is available to help all regular contributors better utilize the website. In addition, she uploads and formats new contributions from one-time authors, manages the AN calendar
, helps answer AN
–related questions, and provides additional support to the managing editor as needed. In her non-AN
time, she continues to support the AAA journals during editorial transitions and with annual deadlines. She also fields questions about permission requests. Her recent MA thesis in anthropology focused on Day of the Dead in Mexico City. She can be reached at eguevara[at]aaanet.org.
