Note from the editorial collective of HAU Journal
As readers of Hau, we had always appreciated the rich variety of material the journal included. As editors, we’re becoming even more attuned to its richness, and the complexities of pulling together such various formats and possibly even forms. Hau includes research articles submitted individually by authors from around the world, and subjected to a rigorous double-blind review process. We hope to expand the space devoted to individually submitted manuscripts in the future.
We also include work that is not subject to editing or revision—such as the reprints of materials that are now hard to find, translations, distinguished lectures, and colloquia. We publish short reflections on current issues—the “shortcuts” sections, and symposia on recently published books. Our hallmark, however, has always been the carefully curated and multiply reviewed special sections and special issues on provocative topics that are currently being debated or revisited in anthropology. We want to reiterate our call in the last issue for proposals for new and exciting formats from our readership.
The editorial collective of Hau Journal is exclusively responsible for the journal. Although we share a scientific editorial board with Hau Books, the two entities have separate editorial collectives. Likewise, the role of the Digital Editor is independent of both Hau Journal and Hau Books.
We would like to ask that people who have, at some point in the past, been asked to be a part of the Scientific Editorial Board or to work with Hau in any capacity check if their name is appropriately listed or, indeed, if it should be listed at all.
