Archaeologies: Journal of the World Archaeological Congress offers a venue for debates and topical issues, through peer-reviewed articles, reports and reviews. It emphasizes contributions that seek to recenter (or decenter) archaeology, and that challenge local and global power geometries. Areas of interest include ethics and archaeology; public archaeology; legacies of colonialism and nationalism within the discipline; the interplay of local and global archaeological traditions; theory and archaeology; the discipline’s involvement in projects of memory, identity, and restitution; and rights and ethics relating to cultural property, issues of acquisition, custodianship, conservation, and display.

Recognizing the importance of non-Western epistemologies and intellectual traditions, the journal publishes some material in nonstandard format, including dialogues; annotated photographic essays; transcripts of pubic events; and statements from elders, custodians, descent groups and individuals.

    The intention of Archaeologies: Journal of the World Archaeological Congress is to provide a venue to present debates and address topical issues in a timely manner, through a mix of peer-reviewed articles, reports, and reviews. In keeping with the core values of the World Archaeological Congress and its commitment to diversity, multivocality, and social justice, it is particularly interested in contributions that seek to recentre (or decentre) world archaeology, and that contest local and global power geometries within the discipline. Areas and topics of interest include ethics and archaeology; public archaeology; the legacies of colonialism and nationalism within the discipline; the articulation between local and global archaeological traditions; theory and archaeology; the discipline’s involvement in projects of memory, identity, and restitution; and the rights and ethics relating to cultural property, issues of acquisition, custodianship, conservation, and display.

    The editors encourage writing that is accessible, scholarly, and engaged. In recognizing the importance of non-Western epistemologies and intellectual traditions, the editors are committed to giving serious consideration to submissions in nonstandard format (for example, dialogues; annotated photographic essays; transcripts from public events; opinion pieces; and statements from elders, custodians, descent groups. and individuals).
