Museum Anthropology seeks to be a leading voice for scholarly research on the collection, interpretation, and representation of the material world. Through critical articles, provocative commentaries, and thoughtful reviews, this peer-reviewed journal aspires to cultivate vibrant dialogues that reflect the global and transdisciplinary work of museums. Situated at the intersection of practice and theory, Museum Anthropology advances our knowledge of the ways in which material objects are intertwined with living histories of cultural display, economics, socio-politics, law, memory, ethics, colonialism, conservation, and public education.

Museum Anthropology, a publication of the Council for Museum Anthropology (CMA), is edited by Maxine E. McBrinn and Antonio Chavarria, with its editorial offices at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture/Laboratory of Anthropology.
