The bibliography section features citations to recently published works in all formats and covering all aspects of the history of anthropology. This page displays a comprehensive list of citations that we’ve collected since 2016 (going back as far as 2013); our recent batches and posts and a search tool are also available separately. You may also browse this list in Zotero.

We welcome suggestions from readers. If you come across something of interest during your own fieldwork in the library, whether that be physical or virtual, please let us know by emailing us at bibliographies@histanthro.org.
