Editor's Note

Papers are invited from graduate students and professionals who are involved in scholarly research on some system of human movement, or some aspect of its study in social and cultural contexts. We welcome contributions from socio-cultural anthropology and related disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, as well as interdisciplinary investigations. Papers that provide theoretical and methodological insights are preferred over those that rely on description alone. Reviews of publications of interest to the field are welcome, as are critical comments on the essays we publish. As a general rule, a paper should not exceed 6000 words (1500 for reviews and commentaries, although 'review essays' can be longer). In all cases, writers are asked to conform to the conventions for notes and references found in recent Volumes of the Journal.
