KROEBER ANTHROPOLOGICAL SOCIETY (KAS) PAPERS
"The Kroeber Anthropological Society is the oldest graduate student-run publication in the United States.... In the Fall of 1949, a group of anthropology students at the University of California (Berkeley) gathered to discuss the possibility of forming a society of anthropologists which could publish occasional papers. The organization was officially constituted on December 1, 1949."
"Since its first publication, the KAS has published a semi-annual volume with an international readership. Although many anthropologists all over the world have submitted papers to the KAS, many volumes are collections of students' and faculty's papers in the department of anthropology at Berkeley. The overall themes of the KAS papers represent the diversity of the field as well as the wide range of scholarship in anthropology."
