Ethnography in Unstable Places

Carol J. Greenhouse Elizabeth Mertz Kay B. Warren
Price: $ 21.95

¿Everyday Life in Unstable Places is a profound exercise in ethnographic reflexivity. It seeks to consider new possibilities, new challenges, new horizons¿at once conceptual, political, ethical¿for an old anthropological method by taking it precisely where it was not designed to go: into everyday worlds radically transformed by hitherto unimagined social conditions, unimaginable political circumstances, altered states, economies, subjectivities. Expansive in their scope, provocative in their theoretical implications, even poetic in their treatment of human lives, the essays in this volume show 'where past has gone, where the future will come from';the past and future, that is, of both anthropology and the worlds with which it concerns itself.¿¿John Comaroff, University of Chicago

"Beyond being topical, this groundbreaking collection represents precisely the kind of inquiry that contemporary anthropology should be dedicating itself to-one brave enough to abide, ethnographically and theoretically, in the interstices of knowledge-based and experiential models, in the gaps between individual and collective agency, in realms of historical and cultural contingency."-Debbora Battaglia, Mount Holyoke College
