Become a Neos Reviewer!

Neos is looking for volunteers to peer-review article submissions! We are currently in the process revamping our database of reviewers and require you to opt in!

Neos is a bi-annual publication of the Anthropology of Children and Youth Interest Group (ACYIG) of the American Anthropological Association (AAA). This publication consists of peer-reviewed short articles as well as editor-reviewed feature pieces.

Neos relies on the work of many volunteers, including the editor, assistant editors (copy editor, layout editor, and more), the ACYIG communication team, and a multitude of advisory board members for both Neos and ACYIG, and, importantly, article reviewers!

If you are interested in the peer-review process, willing and able to review one or two short articles (~1000 words!), have great attention to detail, and can respond within a short turnaround, you would be a great asset to Neos!

Please sign up to become a reviewer here: http://bit.ly/acyigvolunteers.

MEET THE NEW NEOS EDITOR – VICTORIA HOLEC

Victoria Holec is currently working on her PhD in Cultural, Social, and Political Thought in the departments of Anthropology and Sociology at the University of Lethbridge (Canada). Her dissertation titled “Who are the Millennials? Exploring the constructions and performances of ‘Millennial’ as categories of analysis and practice” investigates Millennial identities as both other-constructed and self-performed through discourse and lived experience. Here, she examines the usefulness of the generation as category of analysis, theories of post-identity, and conceptualizations of youth. Her methodologies involve microblog discourse analysis and design studios (cf. Rabinow & Marcus, 2008). Currently, Victoria is developing a course on “Conceptualizing Youth,” which reviews deterministic and constructivist conceptualizations of youth, major theories and methodologies used to study youth, and applies these to current issues and media representations concerning youth ranging from Neuroscience, Psychology, Anthropology, and History to Media and Cultural Studies.

New ACYIG YouTube Channel

Dear ACYIG community,

We are excited to announce that we’ve recently launched a New YouTube Channel.

The channel includes content from our previous channel as well as new content more recently provided by our members.

The purpose of this channel is simply to consolidate all audiovisual material that can be useful for teaching about different topics related to children and youth. For example, we currently have sub-sections that include material on “Children and the Media,” “Children and Race,” and “Children and Gender.”

We invite you to 1) subscribe to our channel and 2) share any relevant materials with us. What are some of the videos that you turn to when teaching about children and youth?  Materials could include videos on: race, gender, sexuality, migration, education, development, cultural psychology, play, consumption, the state, globalization, you name it!

Suggestions can be sent via FacebookTwitter, or E-mail. We look forward to collaborating with you to further the resources available to our ACYIG community!
