The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Anthropology (CEA) has so far been read by over a quarter of a million people, reported the Managing Editor of CEA.

It has published six new entries in the first five months of 2021. They discuss anthropological insights to diverse topics such as “Climate Change”, “Depression”, “Dependence” and “Latin America”. Entries on “Cannibalism” and “Free Speech” will also be published in the next few weeks. Readers can find a total of 65 open-access CEA entries here: For information about new entries and updates about anthropology news in general, follow us on Twitter or Facebook (@anthroencyclo).
