  • Obituaries Without Biographies: Death and Health Care in Roma Camps in
           Rome
    • Abstract: Rome, February 2011. Fire broke out in a shack within a small, hidden Romanian Roma settlement. Four children were sleeping inside it at the time. They all died.This event happened during the ethnographic fieldwork I was conducting in the very same area, which was also where the Camper sanitario, a mobile medical unit specifically dedicated to the Roma camps, operated. My research mainly took place at that unit from 2009 to 2011, and focused on the forms of presence and the action of the State in segregated urban spaces such as the Roma camps. The aim of the research was to observe the role of health care units operating in marginalized urban areas, and also to observe their part in that very same marginalization. ... Read More

  • How to Rename a Hospital: Biomedical Technologies and New Combinations of
           Business and Charity in Cambodian Public Health
    • Abstract: On a sticky evening in late May 2009, I sat with Mary and Heng on the multicolored plastic mat on their floor, eating plates of rice and ginger chicken. As I was telling them about my morning in the imagery ward at the Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital, Heng interrupted me with a snort. Russian Hospital, as it was commonly called, didn't have good ultrasound machines. The really nice machines were made by General Electric (GE) and would soon be at Kossamak, another government hospital on the opposite side of the city. I had been doing research on imaging practices at Russian Hospital for the past few months, and I was curious. Why were new GE machines going to Kossamak, a smaller government hospital, originally ... Read More

  • Oblivious Title: On the Political Time of Land Tenure in Postwar Peru
    • Abstract: A bad feeling weighed on Tina as she stepped into the boat. Only ten minutes before, she had noticed a canoe as it cut past the port heading fast upstream. And Rayo, the guy steering the outboard motor…not a pleasant character. It's true: he appeared to be alone, but put those two together—him going who knows where at that speed—well, she told herself, something's up. And it can't be good.Standing on the bank of the Magdalena, tributary of the mightier Huallaga River, Tina contemplated in silence as she waited for a ride to her farm. The achy tiredness in her limbs upon waking had all but dissipated when the moto-taxi dropped her off at the port. Now that she regained full command over her senses, she was guardedly ... Read More

  • Strengthening the Family through Television: Islamic Broadcasting,
           Secularism, and the Politics of Responsibility in Turkey
    • Abstract: In 1990, the Turkish state's monopoly on television broadcasting came to an end, enabling the liberalization of the media sector and the flourishing of many privately owned TV stations, including several Islamically oriented ones. The programming of Islamic TV channels was initially distinctly theological in character, with shows focusing on the doctrinal, scriptural, and ritualistic aspects of Islam. Recently, however, Islamic TV broadcasters have started producing family-friendly entertainment programs as well as family-related shows aimed at solving domestic problems and "strengthening the family." To illustrate, The Family Court (Aile Mahkemesi), a popular reality TV show aired on Samanyolu TV, tries to solve ... Read More

  • Returning to No Home: Educational Remigration and Displacement in Rural
           China
    • Abstract: At the beginning of grade eight, Meiyun,1 a top student in a public middle school in Shanghai, was constantly reminded by her teachers that she should go back to rural Chongqing in southwest China for school. She was brought to Shanghai in 2000 at the age of six by her parents, who have been working in a rubber parts manufacturing factory since they migrated to the city. "Every other week the teachers in school would have talks with me: 'How come you are still here!'…They were pressuring me to go home, as if chasing a guest out of their sitting room."The dilemma Meiyun faces is common among second-generation migrant youth who grew up in their parents' adopted cities. There are over 35 million2 such migrant youth ... Read More

  • Forced Childlessness and Ruptured Personhood: The Politics of Motherhood
           for Central African Refugee Women Resettled in Australia
    • Abstract: "There, in that tent in the refugee camp, life was hard." Camille told me. "But there," she went on, "I had my children. Here," she gestured to her stomach. "And here," she said, and pointed to her back."In Australia," she continued, "I am back in a tent. But here, I have no children. None. Australia has killed me."1At the time this conversation took place in early 2014, Camille had been homeless for almost one month and had been living without electricity in a tent on the eastern coast of Australia.

  • Among a Hundred Good Virtues, Filial Piety is the First: Contemporary
           Moral Discourses on Filial Piety in Urban China
    • Abstract: In 2011, while conducting research in Beijing on parent-child relationships with young Chinese singletons, I was frequently involved in conversations that centered on the importance of filial piety. One 21-year-old male singleton, for instance, told me that filial piety was the most prominent character of a moral person, stating that "lots of our moral qualities are being buried in the social world. Engaging in filial piety is to explore our inner selves and to realize who we really are…filial piety is only real when we treat our parents with our true hearts and feelings." A few days later, a female singleton made a similar remark:among a hundred good virtues, filial piety is the first [baishi xiao weixian]. In ... Read More

  • Visions of Care: Medicalization and Public Patienthood in Sao Paulo,
           Brazil
    • Abstract: As I arrive at the clinic on a Tuesday afternoon, Dr. Flávia Monteiro catches me in the hall to ask if I want to interview a patient she thinks might be of particular interest to me. "It's a very interesting case," she insists, "very medicalized—she thinks everything is wrong with her." During my first meeting with physician and professor Dr. José Torres, he presents one of the clinic's central goals and struggles as working against the "overly medicalizing practices" of other health care services. During an early afternoon of observation in the clinic, a medical resident gushes about his critical theory reading group and its focus on medicalization. One week in mid-July, I accompany a group of clinic staff members ... Read More

  • Salero dir. by Mike Plunkett (review)
    • Abstract: Mike Plunkett's directorial debut, Salero, takes place in Bolivia's Salar de Uyuni, the largest salt flat in the world. The film's exquisite cinematography captures not only the haunting majesty of the Salar de Uyuni, but also the simple beauty of the innocuous elements of daily life in Colchani, the small town closest to the Salar. The film is both an astoundingly gorgeous piece of work and a richly detailed portrait of a dying way of life. Yet this portrait is incomplete. A full understanding of the dangers of the incoming mine are outside the scope of the film. Educators showing Salero should be prepared to add additional context to illustrate that the stakes are far deeper than what we see on screen.The film ... Read More

  • Joseph Mitchell—with Variations
    • Abstract: This 75-page Prickly Paradigm Press offering is perhaps the most intertextual text I have ever been challenged to review—which is to say, there are more voices per line of text here than an adventurous anthropological reader will encounter in a month of Sundays. Joseph Mitchell, the iconic, iconoclastic New Yorker writer, was "the chronicler of an earlier New York City's odder citizens," as Robert Brightman puts it in his introduction (1). Mitchell's chronicling combined the strengths of both journalism and anthropology; indeed, Brightman quotes Mitchell asserting that "the most interesting human beings, so far as talk is concerned, are anthropologists, farmers, prostitutes, psychiatrists, and the occasional ...

  • The Anthropology of Expeditions: Travel, Visualities, Afterlives eds. by
           Joshua A. Bell and Erin L. Hasinoff (review)
    • Abstract: Imagine, for a moment, your favorite childhood museum. No matter how many times you visited with the intention of exploring a new exhibit, there was always that one artifact or artwork you had to see. But while the piece's description may have been inscribed in your mind, you still never quite understood exactly how the artifact got there. Joshua A. Bell and Erin L. Hasinoff offer us insight into the past lives of the objects and art we see in museums with The Anthropology of Expeditions: Travel, Visualities, Afterlives, a collection of articles by various anthropologists who not only describe the intricacies of museum politics and expeditions, but also the sociality of the objects themselves and the ways their ...

  • The Voice and Its Doubles: Media and Music in Northern Australia by Daniel
           Fisher (review)
    • Abstract: In The Voice and Its Doubles: Media and Music in Northern Australia, Daniel Fisher of the University of California, Berkeley, offers an insightful and well-theorized analysis of the challenging domain of Aboriginal radio broadcasting in Australia's north. It presents research grounded in fieldwork that was undertaken last decade before the Howard government abolished the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC), which was a conduit through which many Indigenous public programs were funded. Fisher's observations recount the trials faced by Aboriginal radio networks under the constant pressures of dwindling public funds, low wages for Indigenous broadcasters employed through government ...

  • Infectious Change: Reinventing Chinese Public Health After an Epidemic by
           Katherine A. Mason (review)
    • Abstract: Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) first appeared in late 2002 in southern China. Symptoms of infection with the novel coronavirus include high fever, body aches, and a dry, nonproductive cough. A proportion of cases require intensive care services, including mechanical ventilation. Fatalities are not uncommon. Following cases reported in Guangdong Province and Hong Kong during February–March 2003, more cases emerged in Beijing and farther afield, with infected travelers seeding hotspots in global centers such as Toronto, Singapore, and Hanoi. By the end of July 2003, more than 8,000 suspected and confirmed cases of SARS were identified in 29 countries, resulting in 774 deaths.In Infectious Change, Katherine ... Read More

  • The Insecure City: Space, Power, and Mobility in Beirut by Kristin V.
           Monroe (review)
    • Abstract: Traffic might be the single most important daily concern of people in Beirut. The city's congestion and accompanying discourses of chaos are practically inescapable and they are likely to infiltrate any conversation. On a typical day in the Hamra neighborhood of Beirut, for example, it could take 15 minutes to traverse by car a distance of 100 feet. It is common to find cars double parked, taxis slowing to pick up or drop off people at random, and private cars zig-zagging through traffic. Compounding the issue of traffic is the always impending political violence and the accompanying securitization of the city. This means that mobility is confronted with all types of barriers, including military checkpoints ... Read More

  • An Asian Frontier: American Anthropology and Korea, 1882–1945 by
           Robert Oppenheim (review)
    • Abstract: Robert Oppenheim's An Asian Frontier: American Anthropology and Korea, 1882–1945 is a significant contribution to the history of American anthropology, going far beyond the seemingly narrow scope suggested by its title. Beginning with the question, "Why write a book about the American anthropology of Korea before 1945'" (1), Oppenheim proceeds to trace a compelling thread of theory and practice in the discipline during this critical period of professionalization.The author successfully argues the point that our current understandings of American anthropology's engagement with Korea and the rest of Asia, which makes it largely a post-World War II development, is fundamentally false and misleading. He begins with the ... Read More

  • Losing Afghanistan: An Obituary for the Intervention by Noah Coburn
           (review)
    • Abstract: After his studies of local politics in the community of potters of the town of Istalif, North of Kabul, and the internationally sponsored elections in Afghanistan (Coburn 2011, Coburn and Larson 2014), in Losing Afghanistan, Noah Coburn offers a new, insightful book on the post-2001 international intervention. He asks how and why the billions of dollars that flowed into Afghanistan have not lead to more development and security. The manuscript keeps away from the strategic and military aspects of the Afghan situation as well as the usual policy-oriented and journalistic tropes, such as the struggle between tradition and modernity, the socially and politically backward insurgency, the unruly tribal groups, the ...

  • Nature, Culture, and Society: Anthropological Perspectives on Life by
           Gisli Palsson (review)
    • Abstract: What do Manhattan spit parties, Innuit genomics, Nim Chimpsky, and Icelandic fishing have in common' All have been taken up by Gisli Palsson as ethnographic objects capable of providing anthropological insights into the ways that life itself is being perpetually remade via research in genetics, as well as human–animal and human–environment relations. In Nature, Culture, and Society: Anthropological Perspectives on Life, Palsson brings together a collection of essays that draw on material he has published over the last 20 years. Reading the essays back-to-back provides insight into Palsson's intriguing style, which combines astute summaries of contemporary theoretical debates with often arcane but relevant ... Read More

  • Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene by Donna J.
           Haraway (review)
    • Abstract: If you have read any anthropology in the past few years, you'll have learned that we live in the Anthropocene, an epoch wherein humans have been the primary determinants of transformation upon the earth. We have burned through fossil fuels, destroyed ecosystems, and charted a course for uninhabitable climate change, all the while exponentially increasing our numbers. And now, a global ecological disaster is upon us. Donna Haraway denies none of these facts, but is impatient with what she sees as the two dominant responses to this calamitous future: a "comic faith in technofixes…[that] technology will somehow come to the rescue of its naughty but very clever children"; and a position that "the game is over, it's too ...
