THE ARGONAUT MAGAZINE


THE HISTORY

The project 'Argonaut' was an initiative by the Anthropology department of the London School of Economics to publish the first ever anthropological magazine in campus. The first edition of the Argonaut was printed in 1972.  In 2015, 43 years later, a group of Anthropology students published the second edition. 

The title of the magazine was inspired by Bronislaw Malinowski's ethnography "Argonauts of Western Pacific". Malinowski studied exchange and economics at the LSE and returned a couple of years later to teach as an anthropology professor. It is in his honour that we have named the LSE Anthropology Magazine as such. 

For the academic years 2015-2016 and 2016-2017, the Argonaut was not operating.

...and this is what happened.

THE ARGONAUT RELAUNCH

The new and reviewed version of the project 'Argonaut' includes the online blog, a printed version of the magazine and our newsletter that is published once every fortnight. Our printed version of the magazine includes the best of the pieces submitted by students. The Little Argonaut is our newsletter sent out to the students to keep them up to date with happenings of anthropological interest taking place around London.
