General guidelines

  • Please provide submissions by email in doc or docx file formats.
  • Provide references for the literature you cite, either with links or a bibliography.
  • If you provide images or other media to be included in the submission, indicate the original source of the media and the placement in the submissions using brackets. TGA editors may choose to exclude media because of technical restraints or if copyrights apply.
  • Hyperlinks should be indicated in brackets within the text with the words they must be associated to. Ex: [The Geek Anthropologist, https://thegeekanthropologist.com/]

Contribution formats

Articles

Around 1000 to 2000 words. Articles should reflect an attempt to carefully analyze any theme explored on TGA from an anthropological perspective.

Short and Sweet Book Reviews

Maximum of 1000 words. We do want to know if you liked the book or not, but please let us know how its contents relate to the themes explored on TGA.

Epic Review Essays

Maximum 3000 words. These in-depth reviews cover the same topics as short reviews, but should be more critical: did the author reach the goals that were set for the book? How does it stand in relation to the rest of the literature on the topic? Is it worth reading, and why?

Interviews

No word limit. Can be presented in audio, video or text format. Long interviews may be published in several installments.

Reports

Maximum of 2000 words. You attended a great panel at Comic-Con? Should we know about a fascinating anthropology conference you attended? Please provide a description of the event (date, location, context), summarize the information you obtained and share you own insight with our readers.

Other forms of contributions

  • Series: long articles can be published in several installments, creating a series.
  • Bibliography: add references to our bibliography or write a short commented bibliography.
  • Video or audio: don’t want to write? Feel free to create a video or audio file!
  • Short news: give our readers a sense of what’s happening in the field of geek anthropology.

We encourage you to reach out with possible contributions and concerns in a spirit of geeky reciprocity, but we may not be able to respond to every request and inquiry. We hope to serve as a resource hub and source of conversation and social cyberspace interaction, but please understand that we are here to cultivate and curate. Our capacities to help you edit or conduct research is unfortunately limited and beyond the purview of this blog. After all, we’re not superheroes or cyborgs…Yet.
