  • New Directions in the Anthropology of Religion and Gender: Faith and
           Emergent Masculinities
    • Abstract: This special collection featured in Anthropological Quarterly considers an underexplored topic in anthropology: the critical relationship between masculinity and religion. Despite the fact that this relationship is, in many parts of the world, a subject frequently commented upon and stereotyped—with popular media often depicting religion as a source of support for gender inequality and for "toxic masculinity"—sustained attention to religion and masculinity by anthropologists is surprisingly new and remains relatively unexplored conceptual terrain. This is likely in part because a specific scholarly interest in masculinity itself is still a relatively recent phenomenon, the result of a series of developments in how ... Read More

  • Islam, Sex, and Sin: IVF Ethnography as Muslim Men's Confessional
    • Abstract: [The] confession became one of the West's most highly valued techniques for producing truth. We have since become a singularly confessing society. The confession has spread its effects far and wide. It plays a part in justice, medicine, education, family relationships, and love relations, in the most ordinary affairs of everyday life, and in the most solemn rites…One confesses in public or in private, to one's parents, one's educators, one's doctor, to those one loves; one admits to oneself, in pleasure and in pain, things it would be impossible to tell anyone else, the things people write books about. One confesses—or is forced to confess.In The History of Sexuality, Michel Foucault observes that "Western man has ... Read More

  • Pious Masculinity, Ethical Reflexivity, and Moral Order in an Islamic
           Piety Movement in Pakistan
    • Abstract: Concerns and anxieties about the violent nature of Islam have reached a feverish pitch since 9/11. Signs of Islamic piety like beards are readily associated with violent proclivities, and veiling has become the symbol of women's oppression par excellence. These concerns and anxieties about Islam have furnished the ground for regulation of Muslim practice in Western countries like the 2004 French ban on "conspicuous religious symbols" in schools that outlaws the Islamic headscarf and the subsequent criminalization of the face veil or niqab. French feminists have defended such policies as necessary to both protect French secularism from the encroachment of religion as well as to protect Muslim women from patriarchal ... Read More

  • From Wrestling with Monsters to Wrestling with God: Masculinities,
           "Spirituality," and the Group-ization of Religious Life in Northern Costa
           Rica
    • Abstract: The head of the man was apparently the only part of him that the crocodiles would not eat.The story of Omar Jirón's grisly death appeared in the Costa Rican press as I first drafted this essay,1 and its depiction seemed to mirror the tales many men told in the religious and therapeutic settings where I did my research. The site of Jirón's death was a semi-official tourist destination, where the Tárcoles River passes beneath a bridge on the highway connecting Costa Rica's altitudinous Central Valley to the Pacific Ocean. Over a dozen crocodiles regularly congregate there, and foreigners and locals alike gather to admire the creatures—they bring their children, take photos, and (to the chagrin of officials who ...

  • Victims of Illicit Desire: Pentecostal Men of God and the Specter of
           Sexual Temptation
    • Abstract: Look, I would say that women are more sensitive to the call [of conversion]. Even though at the beginning Jesus called 12 [male] disciples, the whole time women have been more sensitive to the call. The culture of men is more of the streets [más de la calle]. A man easily has more than one woman, while the woman is more of the house [más de la casa]. Men use drugs more than women. There are many men and women who use drugs, but men use them more.

  • With Respect to Zulu: Revisiting ukuHlonipha
    • Abstract: Hlonipho, to give its form as a Zulu noun stem, is a form of respectful behavior in speech and action.1 Mentioned in colonial-era documents and other writings since the mid-19th century, it has been widespread in southern Africa, and practiced among (at least) the Zulu, Xhosa, Swazi, and Sotho. Recent studies, including several very useful sociolinguistic and ethnographic descriptions, have focused their attention mainly upon isihlonipho sabafazi, the linguistic form of hlonipha associated with women (the isi- prefix implies a way of speaking).2 Indeed, a stereotype of hlonipha as "women's language" goes back to ethnographic and linguistic literature from decades ago, and is described as a form of linguistic taboo ...

  • Unlikely Cosmopolitans: An Ethnographic Reflection on Migration and
           Belonging in Sri Lanka
    • Abstract: When I asked him why migration was so popular in this town, Niklas explained that, in his opinion, there were two main motives. The Sri Lanka–Italy connection had started back in the late 1970s, when Catholic priests from the Negombo region traveled to Rome for their studies and helped a few women find jobs as caretakers (badanti) for the elderly. These women later took their husbands, and soon after siblings and other relatives followed, rapidly building strong chains of migration between several localities on the Western coast of Sri Lanka and Italian cities (Reeves 2013, Tognetti Bordogna and Ornaghi 2012). Unlike the current situation where boats overcrowded with migrants incessantly depart the North African ... Read More

  • "If You Greet Them, They Ignore You": Chinese Migrants, (Refused)
           
    • Abstract: When Ms. Wang1 first came to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, to work in her older brother and sister-in-law's tire shop, she walked with them through the crowded bustling wholesale market of Kariakoo. On street after street, inexpensive shoes, clothing, diapers, plumbing supplies, and auto parts—most of them Chinese-produced goods—circulate between innumerable wholesalers, retailers, petty traders, middlemen, and customers. Sprinkled amidst the crowd were Chinese men and women moving about. Ms. Wang found that most of the Chinese ignored her, but up and down the street, Tanzanian petty traders called out "Mchina!" (sw. Chinese!), "mambo!" (sw. hello!), and even "nǐ hǎo" (你好, ch. hello).2"Tanzanians are very enthusiastic ... Read More

  • Negotiating Who "Owns" Penobscot Culture
    • Abstract: The law is a discourse that operates in historically contingent and meaningful ways, articulated to other discourses ideologically, strategically, and irrationally. It informs the constitution and character of the relations of power and knowledge between Native peoples and the United States, and within Native communities.On a cold New York morning in early March 2016, James Eric Francis Sr. and I bundled out of the 81st Street subway stop to go to see the Penobscot collections at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH). James is the Tribal Historian and Director of the Department of Cultural and Historic Preservation at the Penobscot Nation in Maine. For the last six years we have been working together on ...

  • Deferral and Intimacy: Long-distance Romance and Thai Migrants Abroad
    • Abstract: Fern became engaged to her boyfriend, Aek, before she went abroad to marry a European1 man, a customer at the snooker club where she was a hostess. While Fern lived in Europe, Aek waited back home in Isan (the northeastern region of Thailand). Even though she was married to another man, Fern insisted on describing herself as laying the foundations for a future together with Aek. She described her marriage as "work"—"I work as a white person's wife" (ku thamngaan2 pen mia farang), she told me—and she sent home remittances, like any other migrant laborer. Fern told me that, once she had accumulated enough capital, she planned to divorce her European husband and return to Isan. Aek, in preparation, planted Pará rubber ... Read More

  • Gendered Violence and Indigenous Mexican Asylum Seekers: Expert Witnessing

    • Abstract: How do we integrate research with advocacy' How do we simultaneously write an anthropology of human suffering and an anthropology of hope, relief, and safety' This article comes out of my work over the past nine years as both a pro bono expert witness and a researcher. The gifts of finely tuned ethnography can be crucial in contextualizing a story of individual suffering in its larger historical, cultural, political, and economic context in an immigration court. When asylum is awarded, well-written ethnography packaged as part of an expert witness report can be a gateway to hope, safety, and the ability to imagine the future.The intertwined theoretical contributions of this article are: 1) how to interpret the ...

           Life among Home-based Workers in the Philippines
    • Abstract: It was a hot, sunny day in March 2012. Together with a member from Patamaba, the National Network of Informal Workers,1 I went to a resettlement area administered by the National Housing Authority (NHA) and located in Caloocan City, in the periphery of Metro Manila, the national capital region (NCR) of the Philippines. Most of the inhabitants of the place had earlier lived as squatters under bridges, on river banks, and in other lowland areas. While most of the men earned their livelihoods as low-level state employees or in the informal economy, particularly as construction workers and tricycle drivers, the women stayed at home in their dwellings juggling household tasks with paid work.My purpose there was to ...

  • Slowing Down on the Path to Knowledge
    • Abstract: Elders among the Songhay people of the Republics of Niger and Mali long ago taught me an important lesson: it takes a great deal of time to learn important things. As a young and impatient student, I asked too many questions and pushed my teachers about the deep truths of Songhay culture.They politely refused.They told me that my mind was too young to learn important things. They said that the mind stretches with time-in-the-world. When age and collective experience have ripened a person's mind, he or she is then ready to receive the wise truths of the ancestors. What can a young mind, they would ask rhetorically, comprehend about being a human being' Although their orientation to learning frustrated me at first ... Read More

  • Violence, Intervention, and the State in Central Africa
    • Abstract: In central Africa, the state's supposed monopoly on violence is tenuous at best. Road checkpoints staffed by armed men who determine right to passage, search vehicles, and demand payment may seem like familiar characteristics of the state: security, violence, taxing. But these actors may not necessarily be state security personnel. They could be Chadian bogobogos, ex-rebels that act as "volunteer customs officers," who at times enforce the Chad–Cameroon border and at other times facilitate smuggling. They could also be Central African coupeurs de route, "road robbers," who take from travelers with relative impunity and with political ideologies that are not immediately obvious. Such actors in central Africa could ... Read More

  • Interpreters of Occupation: Gender and the Politics of Belonging in an
           Iraqi Refugee Network by Madeline Otis Campbell (review)
    • Abstract: Interpreters of Occupation is a timely ethnography that centers on Iraqi voices during the US occupation of Iraq and its aftermath. It is a narrative about a war generation born during the Iran–Iraq War (1980–1988) and who came of age during the Gulf War (1991) and the attendant sanctions. It also tackles the ways in which many of these Iraqis were compelled to pursue jobs with the US military following the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime in 2003, and how they ended up as refugees in the US because of their collaboration with the US Army. The book provides a nuanced and complex account of the experiences of young Iraqi men and women, the worlds they had to bridge, the challenges facing them in rendering "Iraqi ... Read More

    • Abstract: I read Llerena Guiu Searle's Landscapes of Accumulation: Real Estate and the Neoliberal Imagination in Contemporary India in a series of cities in India in December 2016. In each city, a new type of assembly had formed. long lines of people—tired retirees, young migrant workers, flirting students—waited with varying amounts of patience outside ATMs. On November 8, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced that the 87 percent of the country's cash supply contained in 500 and 1,000 rupee notes would soon be valueless. Citizens were to deposit their old notes, line up to collect the limited number of new notes, and help transform the nation from one in which 90 percent of transactions were carried out in cash into ...

  • Everyday Creativity: Singing Goddesses in the Himalayan Foothills by Kirin
           Narayan (review)
    • Abstract: Everyday Creativity begins with Kirin Narayan's memory of herself as a 15-year-old girl, sitting in a courtyard in Kangra at the base of the Western Himalayas, listening to women singing songs that she cannot fully understand (xviii). Over the three decades that follow, Narayan visits the region several times, forging a strong bond with the singers, recording their songs, and noting the many textures of meaning that the singing practices bring into women's lives. In this book, she combines her memories and notes to contextualize oral literacy in Kangra, enlightening the reader with stories of individual women who became her mentors, and providing a detailed commentary on collective memory, intimate social ...

  • The Seductions of Quantification: Measuring Human Rights, Gender Violence,

Set down that plastic pocket protector, dim the lights, and follow Sally Engle Merry's insightful analysis of the hidden labor involved in translating the complexity of human experience into numbers.In her latest book, legal anthropologist Merry uses a genealogical approach to reveal the extensive interpretive work and protracted social processes of consensus building and contestation that goes into the development and promotion of indicators. As she states, "the core question of this book is how the production and use of global indicators are shaped by ... Read More

As the word depreshen became used increasingly in everyday interactions in post-war Iran to refer to a host of feelings, Behrouzan set out to investigate historical moments, cultural and linguistic modes of legitimation, and pedagogical logics behind both the epidemiological and ethnographic data on psychiatry. Via ethnographic vignettes, Behrouzan introduces the reader to key interlocutors prior to the start of each chapter, which include: the reasons behind approaching the topic of the book anthropologically ...

  • Borderlands: Towards an Anthropology of the Cosmopolitan Condition by
           Michel Agier (review)
    • Abstract: Michel Agier's Borderlands, originally published in French in 2013, is now available in English (translation by Michael Fernbach). With this new edition, following on the heels of what has been dubbed the "European Refugee Crisis" (Fernando and Giordano 2016), the book is rightly described as "timely" on the jacket. However, the work goes far beyond the contemporary global context of migration and displacement to outline a novel approach to borders, and to notions of the self and the subject, at a moment when, as Agier argues, both are becoming increasingly blurred and decentered. Further, as Agier makes clear early on, such processes of decentering are at the very heart of the anthropological project (9).Upon ... Read More

  • First Strike: Educational Enclosures in Black Los Angeles by Damien M.
           Sojoyner (review)
    • Abstract: In his first book, First Strike: Educational Enclosures in Black Los Angeles, Damien Sojoyner delivers an extended critique of the School-to-Prison-Pipeline (STPP) model that has become hegemonic in both educational anthropology and carceral studies. Building on an intellectual genealogy of Black radicalism that begins with W.E.B. Du Bois and pours forth through St. Clair Drake, Clyde Woods, Beth Ritchie, and Ruthie Gilmore, Sojoyner disrupts the presumptive binary between schools and prisons by arguing that "counter to the pathway established by the School-to-Prison-Pipeline trajectory of schools funneling students into prisons, schools laid the foundation for the expansion of the prison regime in the United ...

  • Prison Worlds: An Ethnography of the Carceral Condition by Didier Fassin
           (review)
    • Abstract: In the 18th century, the prison emerged as both the paradigmatic form of modern punishment and a philosophical model for thinking through tensions between freedom and control in the formation of liberal democratic subjects. Since then, prisons have been a critical site for studying power, subjection, and the state. While the bulk of academic investigations of punishment have grounded their theories upon either philosophical models of the imprisonment or sensationalistic representations of captive life, since the mid-20th century field studies of carceral institutions have played an important role in advancing the scientific and critical study of imprisonment as a technique of social control and "a medium of ...

Biological and geological substances are not external to each other; the living and Non-living breathe in and breathe out together.What ... Read More
