  • “I Will Vote What Is in My Heart”: Sierra Leone’s 2012 Elections and
           the Pliability of “Normative” Democracy
    • Abstract: November 17, 2012 was national election day in the West African country of Sierra Leone. My friend Musa and I walked down Lunsar Road, a main thoroughfare in the provincial capital of Makeni, speaking in hushed tones so that our conversation would not echo in the desolate streets. The normally bustling neighborhoods were silent and deserted. Stores were shuttered, the sidewalk was empty of its usual crowd of traders and children, and the road itself hosted only the occasional official election vehicle, speeding from one polling station to the next. The stillness was broken only by the occasional residents ambling along in twos and threes, wearing their biometric voter ID cards on red lanyards around their necks ... Read More

  • Quandaries of Advertising Censorship in South Korea: Freedom-loving
           Censors, Smart Consumers, and Cynical Sensibility
    • Abstract: “Freedom yes, but for whom? To do what?” The quandaries of advertising censorship in South Korea in the first decade of the 21st century struck me when, in the fall 2009, I went to see Ms. Cho,1 a one-time public representative to the advertising review committee of the Korea Communications Standards Commission (KCSC). To serve as a public representative of this key advertising censorship body, Ms. Cho had been nominated by an influential feminist organization, Womenlink (Yŏsŏng Minuhoe), where she was a senior member of the staff involved in contesting gender portrayals in the media. My primary interest was in Ms. Cho’s experiences at the KCSC, but our conversation meandered to a recent controversial ... Read More

  • The Proliferation of Men: Markets, Property, and Seizure in Jordan
    • Abstract: A map of Jordan and its annual rainfall, based on data from Hijmans MAP BY GEOFFREY FITZGIBBON HUGHES, USING DATA FROM HIJMANS ET AL. 2005 The first time I heard the proverb ‘izwat ar-rijāl aḥsan min ‘izwat al-māl (the proliferation of men is better than the proliferation of wealth), I was talking to my friend Abu Mahmud about his life story. Over 80, he was about five feet tall with a long bushy white beard and kind eyes. We talked about his family: his nine sons and their various jobs, mostly in security services. As we sat on the porch, he gestured down the winding road to their respective houses. He had helped build dwellings for all of them in the neighborhood so that they would always be ... Read More

  • Nation, Nationalism, and Sport: Fijian Rugby in the Local–Global
           Nexus
    • Abstract: Few aspects of contemporary life are as focused on the expression and celebration of nationalism as elite sport. At all major international tournaments, athletes in many sports compete primarily as representatives of their countries, and secondarily as individuals, and even if their individuality is showcased, on television screens their name is always accompanied by their national identification. States celebrate prominent victorious athletes in formal ceremonies, such as receptions at presidential or royal palaces and processions through capital cities. The Parade of Athletes in the Olympic Games opening ceremonies prominently feature symbols of every participating nation in the form of flags, uniforms ... Read More

  • Insult and Insecurity: Discernment, Trust, and the Uncanny in Two US
           Pentecostal Communities
    • Abstract: The devil must be laughing his head off somewhere,” remarked the preacher at a funeral held for a 24-year-old man shot to death on an inner-city street of Buffalo, New York in 2014 in a dispute over drug selling turf. The preacher spoke of homicides as undermining the legacy of African Americans’ struggles for social justice: “We’re a people who lost their land, lost their language, struggled against slavery, became free citizens, and now we’re killing each other.

  • Latour’s AIME, Indigenous Critique, and Ontological Turns in a Mexican
           Psychiatric Hospital: Approaching Registers of Visibility in Three
           Conceptual Turns
    • Abstract: It is mid-July 2012 in a large city in the southeastern state of Yucatan, Mexico. The heat is sweltering; the rainy season has just started, and with the rains have come the mosquitoes. At Las Lomas1 the new psychiatry interns, from less humid parts of Mexico, often think that the patients suffer from skin allergies or rashes because of the severity of the mosquito bites that blanket the patients’ arms, legs, backs, and faces. The lack of mosquito netting on the ward windows and the broken fans only exacerbate the problem. For the patients who are tied to their beds, unable to swat away the persistent insects, the only thing standing between them and a bout of dengue fever is luck. The heat and mosquitoes are the ...

  • On Class, Culture, and the Creation of the Neoliberal Subject: The Case of
           Jordan
    • Abstract: Now that you have the business plan and you have the money to implement it, your neighbors’ house burned down, they have kids, and the whole family is thrown in the streets. What would you do? Of course we would give the money to the family, there is no doubt about it. Are you asking us to think? The unanimous nods from Hussein’s classmates in a Save the Children program to teach microcredit to the marginalized youth of Amman, Jordan, angered the trainer, who told the future entrepreneurs: “You are never going to be good businessmen, I have been teaching you all semester long to focus on your aims and goals, to ignore any distractions, and to think of yourselves only.”1 The reprimand reflects ...

  • Endangered City: The Politics of Security and Risk in Bogotá by
           Austin Zeiderman (review)
    • Abstract: Colombia is at a historic juncture, or so it seems. In less than a week, peace negotiations between the government and the FARC (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia), the country’s largest guerrilla group, went from the celebratory signing of a peace accord in Havana on September 26, 2016, to the rejection of the agreement in a closely voted referendum on October 2nd. In a country that has endured a 52-year conflict, with more than 200,000 deaths and 7 million displaced persons, the transit to a post-conflict era continues to be deeply troubled and the perennial “pre-postconflict” (Theidon 2015) moment raises critical concerns. Immediate concerns include the demobilization and reintegration of armed ... Read More

  • Siege of the Spirits: Community and Polity in Bangkok by Michael Herzfeld
           (review)
    • Abstract: The mountains of Doi Ang Khang in northern Thailand are gridded with rare flowers, pears, persimmons, blueberries, and strawberries. In the morning, the sun cascades down the mountainside, revealing misty, snaking rows of raised beds. In the nearby public gardens, roses, geraniums, and orchids of incomparable size bloom in all colors. The plantings are meant for tourists, who can also commune with the local “hill people” (the Lisu tribespeople, specifically), weaving by loom and singing improvisatory stories in staged settings. Beset by instability of horticulture, many Lisu now perform, sell trinkets, or beg in addition to, or instead of, farming. This review will discuss, in the main, Michael ... Read More

  • Before Boas: The Genesis of Ethnography and Ethnology in the German
           Enlightenment by Han F. Vermeulen (review)
    • Abstract: Han Vermeulen presents the reader with a tome, which, as the title indicates, promises to explore German anthropology before the illustrious American career of Franz Boas. His work is based on a doctoral dissertation defended at the University of Leiden in 2008, and combines a robust text with an extensive note and bibliography section that exceeds 200 pages. Besides primary source material drawn from archives located mostly in Germany and Russia, Vermeulen employed the years since finishing his dissertation to incorporate a very impressive array of secondary sources spanning many European languages. A word of caution should be addressed to those readers who expect Vermeulen’s book to follow along the line ... Read More

  • Unexpected Alliances: Independent Filmmakers, the State, and the Film
           Industry in Postauthoritarian South Korea by Young-a Park (review)
    • Abstract: Young-a Park’s Unexpected Alliances is an ethnographic variation of the narrative on the anticathartic aftermath of the Revolution: what happens when the tyrants are toppled and the oppressed become the new masters? In this ethnography, Park follows South Korea’s activist independent filmmakers throughout the country’s transition from a military authoritarian regime to a democratically-elected post-authoritarian regime. Having participated in the democratization movement as radical liberals, how did they re-invent themselves as key cultural actors in a neo-liberal state? More crucially, how do we make sense of anti-establishment activists as they become the main players in the state’s cultural apparatus? How ... Read More

  • Roads: An Anthropology of Infrastructure and Expertise by Penny Harvey and
           Hannah Knox (review)
    • Abstract: Anthropologists have long been challenged to undertake ethnographic studies of the state. In their joint study of road construction in Peru, Penny Harvey and Hannah Knox draw on conceptions of the state as a relatively abstract entity that is made real through governmental practices. In Roads, the team examines the production of Interstate Highway/Route 26 and the Iquitos-Nauta road as infrastructural technologies. These roads arise out of complex partnerships between state institutions and non-state entities, scholars and scientists, commercial interests, and local populations. Citing De Boeck (2012: 5), the road is taken by Harvey and Knox “as a built form around which publics thicken.” This book is about ... Read More

  • Achieving Procreation: Childlessness and IVF in Turkey by Merve
           Demircioğlu Göknar (review)
    • Abstract: Reproductive healthcare practices are the focal point of a contentious debate between the state, medical practitioners, scholars, feminist groups, and in particular, women, who are both decision makers in and targets of the reproduction controversy. Studies of these practices in Turkey have become a flourishing scholarly field with valuable contributions by Delaney (1991), Gürtin (2009, 2011, 2012), and Balsoy (2013). Merve Demircioğlu Göknar’s Achieving Procreation, which is the first anthropological manuscript on fertility and assisted reproductive technologies in Turkey, builds on this rich existing literature. Achieving Procreation examines the social meaning of childlessness and its ... Read More

  • Drugs, Thugs, and Diplomats: US Policymaking in Colombia by Winifred Tate
           (review)
    • Abstract: Working on human rights in Colombia in the 1990s was an exercise in dread and frustration. The dread anticipated each morning’s headlines. There seemed to be no “floor” to the violence, as fighters on all sides seemed committed to finding ever more clever ways to mutilate the human body and devastate the human spirit. The main paramilitary leader, Carlos Castaño, led a private army known as the “Moche Cabezas,” or Head Splitters. Often, they’d dismember bodies or leave them posed in macabre dioramas on the side of the road. The guerrillas weren’t any better. As a Human Rights Watch researcher, I remember quite clearly the day the news arrived about a tiny village called Machuca, in the same ... Read More

  • My Father’s Wars: Migration, Memory, and the Violence of a Century by
           Alisse Waterston (review)
    • Abstract: It is common today for sensitive ethnographies to appear describing the micro-sociology of world historical processes, works that detail the intimate contexts where large-scale structural forces are played out and experienced at the level of the familial and the personal. But rarely do these endeavors take as their key informant a member of the author’s own family, complete with all the challenges and opportunities, contradictions and harmonies, afforded through the mixing of the personal and the professional in such anthropological undertakings. Rarer still are elegant accounts that accomplish all of the above, plus make use of new publishing and media technologies allowing readers access to a treasure ... Read More

  • Fat-Talk Nation: The Human Costs of America’s War on Fat by Susan
           Greenhalgh (review)
    • Abstract: It seems apropos that as I was finishing Susan Greenhalgh’s Fat-Talk Nation: The Human Costs of America’s War on Fat, when vlogger Nicole Arbour (2015) uploaded her rant, “Dear Fat People,” on YouTube and incited uproar across media platforms. Arbour called for people to practice “fat shaming” to “motivate” weightloss. Like many small media events that burst upon the public sphere and then fade, the Arbour incident was nonetheless emblematic of the deeper and more persistent issues around bodies, size, morality, and value that Greenhalgh expertly tackles in her recent book. Drawing on an underused anthropological approach, autoethnography, Greenhalgh focuses her keen ethnographic eye on the personal ... Read More

  • Eating Korean in America: Gastronomic Ethnography of Authenticity by Sonia
           Ryang (review)
    • Abstract: Sonia Ryang begins her book, Eating Korean in America: Gastronomic Ethnography of Authenticity, by asking the question, “Can food be both national and global?” (1). As this question indicates, her book elaborates the ways in which certain Korean “national” foods have become internationally consumed food items on restaurant menus beyond national—South Korean as well as North Korean—boundaries. The issue of the “authenticity” of “national” food, therefore, is a central theoretical touch-stone of the book. Ryang’s anthropological recipe is uniquely formatted with each chapter devoted to describing how a particular Korean dish is consumed. Her selections include the following dishes: naengmyeon, chilled noodle ... Read More

  • For a Proper Home: Housing Rights in the Margins of Urban Chile,
           1960–2010 by Edward Murphy (review)
    • Abstract: In For A Proper Home: Housing Rights in the Margins of Urban Chile, 1960–2010, Edward Murphy blends anthropology and history to tell the story of generations of Chileans who have fought for the right to a home of their own. No other quest, he argues, has so absorbed Chile’s successive political regimes than making possible universal home ownership. Right wing governments believed that home ownership would turn urban rabble into obedient subjects. Christian Democrats believed that home ownership would weaken support for Marxist parties and turn the urban poor into moral and proper citizens. Even Chile’s Marxist parties prioritized home ownership, building thousands of single-family homes when they were in ... Read More

  • The White Possessive: Property, Power, and Indigenous Sovereignty by
           Aileen Moreton-Robinson (review)
    • Abstract: The story that settler societies like the United States, Canada, and Australia tell about themselves is that they are new, that they are beneficent, and that they are virtuous. They arrive at this story and this version of themselves through discourse and practices like law—because in law, and through law, they render justice. They are with law, they are governed by law, they are thus lawful, and, by extension, take on a “fair” character. These are not, “savage states” ruled by magic, pure belief, or unregulated emotionality. These states have institutions like law that regulate activity, guard against excess and abuse. Further, in each of these settler societies, there are democratic mechanisms in place ... Read More

  • How Chinese Are You? Adopted Chinese Youth Negotiate Identity and Culture
           by Andrea Louie (review)
    • Abstract: How Chinese Are You? joins a growing body of anthropological literature on transnational adoption (see Kim 2010, Marre and Briggs 2009, Seligman 2013, Volkman 2005a, Yngvesson 2010), including studies of the adoption of Chinese children to the United States (Dorow 2006). Louie’s distinctive contribution to this literature is her comparative focus on white American and Asian American adoptive parents.1 She asks how these parents differently approach the challenge of fashioning Chinese identities and culture for their children. Conducted over an eight-year period in the California Bay Area and St. Louis, Missouri, the research has an important longitudinal perspective. Most of the children whose parents Louie ... Read More

  • Birth in the Age of AIDS: Women, Reproduction, and HIV/AIDS in India by
           Cecilia Van Hollen (review)
    • Abstract: This important book is about the enormous challenges women with HIV/AIDS face as they become mothers and struggle to ensure good health for their children. Closely examining state health policies, household dynamics, and the difficult personal choices women have to make, Van Hollen presents an in-depth ethnographic account of the lives of women living with HIV/AIDS in the southern state of Tamilnadu, India. Birth in the Age of AIDS enriches existing anthropological studies of HIV/AIDS by bringing to the fore the myriad things a woman has to maneuver as a wife, widow, mother, and daughter-in-law, and also as a person with HIV/AIDS, all the while maintaining a “positive” outlook to life. This ethnography is ... Read More
