New issue (vol. 8 no 2) and call for papers

We are excited to announce that the newest issue of The Journal for Undergraduate Ethnography (JUE vol 8 no 2) has been published, with six original articles by undergraduate students conducting ethnographic research on special rates areas in the suburbs of Cape Town, South Africa (Zarreen Kamalie), in a community for adults with disabilities in Germany (Nicolas Gedigk), on ethnic minorities' experiences of majority nationalism in Israel and Turkey (C. Phifer Nicholson, Jr.), on passing as white in the Netherlands (Oliver Dougherty), on the impact of an art exhibit to raise awareness of missing and murdered aboriginal women in Canada (Natalie Marie Lesco), and on a comparison of dancers' and sociologists' experiences of embodiment in the USA (Andrea Farley Shimota). Cover art for this issue is by Umi Akiyoshi Photography and features Andrea Farley Shimota's choreography. Thanks to Dalhousie social anthropology masters student Alastair Parsons for his editorial assistance with this issue.

Please share the announcement below with undergraduate students, especially if you are teaching (or taking) a class that involves ethnographic methods.

Call for Papers: The Journal for Undergraduate Ethnography

The Journal for Undergraduate Ethnography (JUE) is an online publication for undergraduate academic writing. The JUE seeks to publish original ethnographic research by undergraduate students working in a variety of disciplines. Our goal is to bring readers insights into subcultures, practices, and social institutions. The JUE encourages undergraduates or those who have graduated within the past twelve months to submit manuscripts for consideration. Manuscripts must be based on original research conducted using ethnographic methods, on any topic in the social sciences.

Submissions are welcomed for our next issues. Deadlines are January 31 and July 31. Please check out our website ( for author guidelines and past issues. Send any questions about submissions to Martha Radice at
