New Directions in Anthropological Writing

George F. Marcus and James Clifford, Series Editors

THIS SERIES IS COMPLETE

Original Series Description
Anthropology shares common interests and perspectives with social history, literary criticism, sociology, media studies, ethnic and gender studies, and other disciplines. Studies of the history, poetics, and politics of culture are transforming anthropology’s traditional focus on exotic or marginal groups. Reflecting these developments, this series presents scholarship in a variety of new arenas. Such work is often experimental in form, probing the dynamics of culture and the limits of representation.
