The sixth edition of this important text traces how the discipline has evolved from its origins to the present day. It offers substantial updates throughout, including more balanced coverage of the four fields of anthropology, an entirely new section on the Anthropocene, and significantly revised discussions of public anthropology, gender and sexuality, and race and ethnicity.
COMING SOON: Culture and Conflict in Palestine/Israel by Edited By Tamir Sorek
Publication Date: 2022
While the scholarly study of culture as a politically contested sphere in Palestine/Israel has become an established field over the past two decades, this volume highlights some particular understudied aspects of it: the relations between Arab identity, Mizrahi identity, and Israeli nationalism; the nightclub scene as a field of encounter, appropriation, and exclusion; an analysis of the institutional and political conditions of Palestinian cinema; the implications of the intersectional relationship between gender, ethnicity and national identity in the field of popular culture, and the concrete relations between particular aesthetic forms and symbolic power.
The authors come from diverse disciplines, including anthropology, architecture, ethnomusicology, history, sociology, and political science.
