New series seeking submissions

This summer we posted several calls for submissions for new and upcoming series at Somatosphere. We’re still accepting submissions for all of these series, so here they are again for anyone who may have missed them the first time around:

  • Foreign Correspondents,” a series edited by Stephanie Lloyd (Laval University), features reviews of books published in languages other than English in the social sciences and humanities of medicine, health and science. You can learn more about the series here.



  • Experiments with pedagogy,” a series edited by Hanna Kienzler (King’s College London), invites contributors to consider new approaches to pedagogy in anthropology and the humanistic social sciences, as well as their impact both on students and on our disciplines.  You can find the full series abstract here.


Aside from these series, we always welcome unsolicited proposals for posts of various kinds, including (but not limited to) thought-pieces, essays, research reports, conference reports, interviews, photo essays, videos, and other multimedia projects.  If you’d like to write a piece for Somatosphere, send us a brief proposal to  If you are specifically interested in reviewing a book for the site or would like to suggest a book for review, please contact our Book Reviews Editor, Seth Messinger directly at Finally, if there’s something that you’d like to see the site cover or address, or if you’d like to get involved in working on Somatosphere in any way, please feel free to get in touch with us at
