Call for Video Submissions

The newly launched Journal of Video Ethnography (JVE) is the first ever peer-reviewed journal of ethnographic films and videos. JVE aims to advance the social scientific use of video/film as a method for exploring human society, systems, and cultures and as a medium for presenting the findings of those explorations.

Our primary objective is to establish a mechanism for the peer review of films that have social science ideas at their core. We expect that most submissions will come from academics who make films. This said, we also aspire to bridge the gap between academia and commercial documentary film and to provide a vehicle for the distribution of films by non-academic filmmakers whose films constitute an ethnographic point of view on a culture, group or phenomenon.

IMPORTANT: Submissions for Fall 2017 publication ended. Next submission deadline: Sept. 15, 2017

Films submitted will undergo single-blind peer review by a panel of three ethnographer-filmmakers. Submitters must be willing to "revise and resubmit" their films as a result of the review process. Click here to submit a video.

Thank you!
