SCA is happy to announce the selection of the next editorial collective for Cultural Anthropology, who will oversee the publication of volumes 38–41 (2023–2026) of the journal. In what has been our tradition of team-led editorships since 2006 (with two sets of dyads and into our second set of triads now with Heather Paxson, Chris Nelson, and Brad Weiss), we are moving to an even more radical form in response to the challenges and conditions of the moment. This is a seven-member collective of scholars diversely positioned, globally located, and multiply oriented. Drawing upon the journal’s genealogy of critical possibility, untimely timeliness, and experimental expansiveness, their aim is to reimagine editorship: “as a curatorial platform that circulates and amplifies ongoing conversations and controversies around the world.” In a world of white supremacism, vaccine nationalism, pandemic populism, dataveillance, mass urbanization, and platform capitalism, the collective steps into the uncertainties of the moment with boldness and vision for carrying the trajectory of Cultural Anthropology into the future.
