Perifèria is an initiative of the PhD candidates from the Social and Cultural Anthropology Department in the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona supported by the direction and the professors of the PhD program.
The project emerged from the necessity of sharing and giving a better knowledge about the research developed in our department by the PhD researchers and the professors. We assume that the most important feature of PhD studies is the fact that they allow to learn the necessary tools for developing an anthropological research. In that sense, it is the main instrument of academic training faced to knowledge generation both in the academic set and in the society in general.
From this point of view, the journal arises as an interesting tool to contribute to knowledge management: a channel where the developed research can be spread, oriented to reuse the research experience of the PhD candidates and the research groups in the department. In that way, we think that Perifèria can contribute not only to the training of each PhD candidate and the visibility of his or her work but also to the development of collective knowledge.
