Between 1959 and 1979, Anthropologica was initially run by the Canadian Research Centre for Anthropology / Centre canadien de recherches pour l’anthropologie at St. Paul University (Ottawa). The journal had acquired a solid reputation, specializing in the study of Canadian First Nations. Anthropologica was transferred to Laurentian University in 1983 and to Wilfrid Laurier University Press in 1989, where it stayed until the merger with Culture.
The Canadian Ethnology Society was established in 1974. In 1981, under its current name, the Canadian Anthropology Society began to publish Culture (now the name of CASCA’s electronic newsletter). In 1987, the association changed its name to the Canadian Anthropology Society / Société canadienne d’anthropologie (CASCA). The current series of Anthropologica started in 1998 after the merger of Canada’s oldest refereed journal of social anthropology, Anthropologica, with the Canadian Anthropology Society’s primary journal, Culture. The Canadian Anthropology Society, which owns the combined journal decided to use the name Anthropologica, which had been in existence for 40 years. In March 2013, Anthropologica moved to its new publisher, the University of Toronto Press.
Anthropologica’s mandate is to reflect the range of research carried out by Canadian Anglophone and Francophone anthropologists and to disseminate that research within Canada and internationally in both languages. Given that Canadian Anthropologists conduct research in any number of global communities, rural and urban, our current focus extends beyond the traditional coverage of Canadian First Nations to include ethnographic research carried out anywhere in the world by Canadian anthropologists. In this way, the journal provides a more inclusive representation of Canadian anthropology scholarship which encompasses global as well as Canadian issues. We also include ethnographic research from international scholars who conduct research in Canada or who are identified by the editors as having important contributions to make to Canadian readers and to the theory, method and ethnography of the discipline.
