Launched in 2012, Fieldsights has helped to catalyze the growth of nonjournal digital publishing in anthropology. Today, its various sections address diverse audiences in both textual and nontextual formats.
Fieldsights posts should not be described as "published in Cultural Anthropology." The two publications have different tempos, review processes, and forms of credit associated with their output.
These Fieldsights sections feature series of ten or more essays, which bring together scholars across institutions and career stages to weigh in on a shared topic. These pieces are reviewed by the editors of Cultural Anthropology.
