Call for Special Issue proposals


The Swiss Journal of Sociocultural Anthropology (SJSCA) – formerly TSANTSA – invites proposals for a Special Issue to be published in 2023. The Special Issue offers guest editors, in collaboration with the editorial board, the opportunity to examine anthropological problem and topics from various perspectives in a series of articles, each contributing to the in-depth discussion of a unifying theme. The Special Issue explores themes of relevance and sheds light on the current state of research in various subfields of social and cultural anthropology.

The Special Issue consists of 4 to 6 articles in English, French or German. Proposals containing articles in more than one of the journal’s publication languages are encouraged.

All articles are subject to double-blind peer-review and are available both in print and in online open access.

Proposals may either take the form of a Call for Papers or consist of a short thematic outline followed by a list of proposed contributions.

You are invited to send us your Special Issue proposal by 15th February 2022 to the following email address: The Special Issue for 2023 will be selected by the editorial team in February 2022.
