PlatForum

PlatForum is a peer-reviewed journal published by the graduate students in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Victoria. Committed to upholding a tradition of holistic anthropology, PlatForum welcomes a diverse range of topics and issues from all four of anthropology’s sub-disciplines: archaeology, social-cultural, biological-physical, and linguistic anthropology.

Recognizing the benefits of both interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary contributions made by students outside the field of anthropology, we continue to extend our call to all students including upper-level undergraduate students, and those from community colleges and universities across Canada.
