Editorial Offices
The Department of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology serves as an editorial office for the following periodicals:

LUD is a well-recognized journal representing a vivid tradition of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology in Poland. It has been present on academic scene for over a hundred years.

Many generations of Polish ethnologists have left a mark of their ethnographic engagements on Lud’s pages both through the ethnographic documentation of cultural variation, and their involvement in theoretical and methodological debates.
It is its “genealogical depth” that makes the journal unique in the Polish context. Similarly, in Europe, the journal remains one of the very few of such kind. Since its establishment in 1895, the journal was closely connected to the Polish Ethnological Society (Polskie Towarzystwo Ludoznawcze, PTL), an association which played a crucial role in the development of ethnology in Poland. Since 1992, LUD’s position has been strengthen due to becoming a body of the Committee on Ethnological Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
In1968, the editorial office was relocated to Poznań. Throughout the years 1968-1987, Prof. Józef Burszta served as the editor-in-chief, and then (1988-2006) Prof. Zbigniew Jasiewicz. In 2007, this post was taken by the Associate Professor Danuta Penkala-Gawęcka.

ESTUDIOS LATINOAMERICANOS is an internationally established journal devoted to the widely understood South American issues. It publishes research across disciplines including: Anthropology, Archeology, History, Ethno-history, Political Science, Art History and Musicology. ESTUDIOS LATINOAMERICANOS aims at presenting the work of Polish researchers interested in the region worldwide. Articles are published in Spanish, Portuguese, English and French. The journal was established 30 years ago as an organ of the Institute of History of the Polish Academy of Sciences. The first editor was a well-known Polish historian and a specialist in American Studies, Prof. Tadeusz Łepkowski. In the mid-nineties, the periodical transformed into a body of the Polish Society of the Latin American Studies.
In 1997, the editorial office was relocated to Poznań (starting from volume 17).
