New Issue TOC: Focaal: Journal of Global and Historical Anthropology (Issue 81: Ethnographic engagements with global elites)

Young Lee's picture

Dear Colleagues,

 

This themed issue of Focaal titled “Ethnographic engagements with global elites: Mutuality, complicity, and critique” draws together ethnographies of family wealth transfers, philanthropy, and private sector development to reflect on the place of critique in the anthropology of elites. This section is followed by general articles ranging from pyramid schemes in Siberia to how illegal status is imagined, embodied, and sustained over time. This issue concludes with a forum section.
