  • Eating and Existence on an Island in Southern Uganda
    • Authors: Lee Johnson; J.
      Pages: 2 - 23
      Abstract: This article examines contemporary ontological conflicts between people who make their living on an island with fish that are considered by fisheries managers to be "commercially extinct" and people who make their living managing "commercially important" fisheries for this region as a whole. It is an experiment in worlding, the work of wading between content and contexts to configure webs of relevant relations through which the politics of eating and existence play out along Uganda's southern littoral. By attending ethnographically to observable actions and concrete practices, I suggest that fishworkers and fisheries managers enact multiple, relatively distinct versions of food, fish, bodies of water, and fisheries. Attending to this multiplicity is crucial for rendering plausible already existing alternatives to an overdetermined future of death, depravity, and collapse that features within scholarly, popular, and policy-oriented accounts of Lake Victoria's fisheries.

  • The Black Winter of 1860-61: War, Famine, and the Political Ecology of
           Disasters in Qajar Iran
    • Authors: Kazemi; R.
      Pages: 24 - 48
      Abstract: This article focuses on one of the most serious cases of famine in Iran in the nineteenth century. Reading through a wide range of contemporary documents, Kazemi uses this episode as a case study to talk about the larger problem of subsistence crises and natural disasters in Iran and the Middle East in the nineteenth century. He contends that the causes of the 1860–61 famine were a series of interlocking issues that had affected the political economy of the Qajar state. The longer-term economic and political developments in the run-up to the crisis had an important role in setting up a broad context in which subsistence crises of this kind could occur frequently. Loss of transcontinental trade and territories, the decline of local industries, worsening trade deficits, the devaluation and scarcity of currency, and chronic imperial and state-building warfare in an increasingly globalized economy had led to the worsening fiscal crisis of the Iranian state and the rise of what was essentially new and predatory capital in the Qajar grain market. In such an atmosphere, people had become vulnerable more than ever before to natural and manmade disasters. Many, if not all, of the processes explained here were central in the making of disasters elsewhere in the Middle East. The factors that brought about these unfortunate episodes in the region were interconnected and had local, regional, and above all global dimensions.

  • How War Shaped Egypt's National Bread Loaf
    • Authors: Schewe; E.
      Pages: 49 - 63
      Abstract: This article examines the consolidation of a regime of government-subsidized wheat bread in Egypt during the Second World War, in tandem with the development of the Egyptian state of emergency and a military courts system. It investigates how landowner resistance and fertilizer shortages brought Egypt to the brink of famine in 1941, and how Anglo-Egyptian diplomacy negotiated a regime of mandatory government grain requisition. It draws on Egyptian news media, bureaucratic reports, and military court cases to show resistance to and the social effects of this policy, including the acceleration of income inequality in rural areas and a huge increase in wheat consumption in cities. The article argues the long-term success of this regime depended on both the improvement of surveillance and coercive technocracy mediated through the military courts and the naturalization of public attitudes toward consuming "mixed" bread and toward the black market and military courts themselves.

  • Modernizing Peasants and "Master Farmers": Progressive Agriculture in
           Early Independent India
    • Authors: Siegel; B.
      Pages: 64 - 85
      Abstract: In the years following independence, looking toward agricultural self-sufficiency, India's national leadership sought to identify cultivators endowed with the daring, grit, and experimental character needed to actualize the promise of plenty. Drawing on Western modernization theory and the idioms of colonial and nationalist economics, India's bureaucrats and politicians contrasted the nation's "progressive farmers" with the passivity and superstition alleged to be characteristic of the majority of peasants, establishing crop competitions and the title of Krishi Pandit—"master farmer"—to reward and trumpet these qualities. Yet the progressive farmers winning these titles were not the agrarian poor, but rather an ascendant, self-cultivating peasantry armed with the capital and connections needed to raise their yields. In a subsequent era of egalitarian reform, exemplified in the Community Development Program, these same progressive farmers continued to bag awards but bucked planners' expectations that they would serve as natural leaders in villages. As these producers mobilized politically, and India's bureaucrats and politicians moved toward the Green Revolution consensus that agricultural productivity would require an inequitable concentration of inputs, progressive farmers emerged as "bullock capitalists," a demand group that would transform national politics but do little for the aims of equity and rural development.

  • Plastics and Agriculture in the Desert Frontier
    • Authors: Dixon; M.
      Pages: 86 - 102
      Abstract: Literature on the global agrifood system largely overlooks the role of reclamation of arid and semi-arid lands in the industrialization of horticulture (fruits, vegetables, and ornamentals) worldwide in the neoliberal period. Why has the development and expansion of industrial horticulture synchronized with "greening the desert" policies and narratives? Dixon's article addresses this question with the concept of desert frontier, which is developed through a case study of industrial horticulture production in Egypt's arid regions and through an analysis of the relations between nature and society. The desert frontier in Egypt demonstrates that the socioecological relations that constitute industrial horticulture have necessitated transformations in farm organization and on-farm practice toward an increasingly coercive and capital-intensive set of agritechnologies and protocols to manage the volatility of industrial agriculture (from monocultures, perpetual genetic erosion, cropping intensification, and so on). The movement of agroexport farms into arid regions has been part of these processes of biosecuritization. This analysis of the socioecological conditions of expanded commodity production within the global food system or corporate food regime problematizes reemerging "greening the desert" narratives that parade the latest greening technical feats as a solution to securing food production in a warming planet.

  • Middle East Politics in US Academia: The Case of Anthropology
    • Authors: Deeb, L; Winegar, J.
      Pages: 103 - 112
      Abstract: In their recent book, Anthropology's Politics: Disciplining the Middle East (Stanford University Press, 2016), Lara Deeb and Jessica Winegar provide the first academic study of how political and economic pressures shape the way scholars based in the United States research and teach about the Middle East. Lila Abu-Lughod, a member of the journal's editorial board, recently talked with the authors about the dynamics of the field. The book's final chapter examines the movement among anthropologists in support of a boycott of Israeli academic institutions. Just after the book's publication, the issue came to a vote at the American Anthropological Association. Abu-Lughod asks the authors whether their research enables us to understand the outcome of the vote.

  • The Columbia Global Humanities Project
    • Authors: Pollock; S.
      Pages: 113 - 116
      Abstract: The past fifty years have seen a profound endangerment of the world's humanities capacity. While the crisis is far from unknown in the United States it is acute across the global south. Columbia University's Global Humanities Project assembled a group of scholars and administrators to provide preliminary reports on the condition of the humanities in Africa, the Arab World, South Asia, and China and Taiwan. The picture is, by and large, grim.

  • Humanities after Apartheid
    • Authors: Diouf; M.
      Pages: 117 - 120
      Abstract: Since independence, African scholars from different traditions (African, Islamic and Western), intellectuals, and politicians have been actively engaging with humanities and social sciences originating from the West and received through the conduit of colonial rule and imperial domination. Both the filiation and the packaging of the knowledge made it suspect and irrelevant to postcolonial societies. But until today the two axiomatic assumptions of knowledge production, policy-oriented/problem-solving research and/or academic research (reduced mainly to humanities), are being resolved at the expense of the latter, circumscribing the territory in which the debate is conducted. It focuses on the possibility (or not) of producing a vernacular conceptual framework, radically detached from the Western colonial social sciences and humanities and its revision by the inclusion of location, race, culture, identities, and alterity. South Africa, which has been inflicted by a vicious racial discrimination and economic exploitation, is leading the discussion, picking up the flag of the decolonization of knowledge.

  • The Humanities to Come: Thinking the World from Africa
    • Authors: Pillay; S.
      Pages: 121 - 131
      Abstract: This article offers a few vignettes on the humanities in contemporary Africa. It suggests that the different fates of the humanities and social sciences have corresponded to changes in political conjunctures, particularly in relation to nationalism in the wake of independence and conceptions of development and neoliberalism after the Cold War. It further takes up the debates in South Africa, the last African country to confront the dilemmas of decolonization in the sphere of knowledge production, most acutely expressed through the Rhodes Must Fall movement and other student movements that emerged in 2015.

  • The Crisis of the Academic Humanities in the Arab World
    • Authors: Dallal; A.
      Pages: 134 - 141
      Abstract: Available evidence suggests that the crisis of the humanities is more critical in the Arab world than it is in the West. This article provides a provisional sketch of the state of arts and humanities scholarship within university settings in the Arab world. The article also examines the effects and limitations of the use of standardized quantitative metrics to assess humanities scholarship and education in Arab universities. A majority of Arab university students prefer to pursue "ideologically safe" professional education, partly because humanities fields are not likely to lead to good careers. More important, the fields of humanistic studies, as constituted in a minority of modern Arab universities, are largely divorced from their cultural contexts and have no room for the study of culturally relevant subjects. Furthermore, in most national Arab universities, culture may receive lip service, but a naturalized study of the humanities remains a neglected part of the landscape of higher education.

  • The Crisis of the Humanities in Egypt
    • Authors: Fahmy; K.
      Pages: 142 - 148
      Abstract: This article studies the difficulties that befall the teaching of the humanities in Egyptian universities. It argues that as is the situation globally, the humanities are in crisis in Egypt. This crisis stems from a complete lack of support by public figures, antiquated pedagogical methods in universities, and distorted admissions policies that disadvantage the humanities. The dismal failure to encourage Egyptian university students to consider Egyptology as a major and the depressing state of the country's museums and archives are cited as particularly poignant signs of the crisis of humanities in Egypt.

  • Location of the Humanities
    • Authors: Sarukkai; S.
      Pages: 151 - 161
      Abstract: There has been much written about the crisis in humanities education. Most of this published debate arises from scholars in Western universities and, at some level, can be seen as a reflection of a crisis about the nature of education and the role of universities in contemporary times in these societies. The crisis in humanities in places like India has been a part of their educational concerns for quite some time, but in this essay, Sarukkai argues that the quality of the crisis and the challenge to humanities education in India are different. For a globally sensitive humanities program, these different kinds of responses to humanities have to be taken into account.

  • Narratives and Legacy: The Humanities Crisis in Pakistan
    • Authors: Haq; S. N.
      Pages: 162 - 170
      Abstract: Haq's article is an analytical examination of the official policies of the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC), the supreme executive federal body that oversees all education beyond high school. Alleging that Pakistan's educational system is facing a crisis, the author identifies three salient features of these policies: one, that the HEC considers all education to be reducible ultimately to a pragmatic process of systematic vocational training that promises employment; two, that the study of the humanities is expressly discouraged as a matter of policy target; and three, that there exists a heavy preoccupation on the part of the HEC with what is called "scientism" in contradistinction to science. As a result of all this, Haq claims, knowledge of languages has all but disappeared from the educational horizons of Pakistan, and the capacity for analytical and critical thought and creative work is rapidly dwindling. Access to primary sources of their complex legacy having been blocked, Pakistanis cannot challenge received narratives that happen to originate from external sources, and they are forced to conceive of themselves as they are conceived in these narratives.

  • The Humanities in China and Taiwan Today: A Commentary
    • Authors: Liu; L. H.
      Pages: 171 - 172
      Abstract: Are the humanities in trouble in China and Taiwan, such as we witness elsewhere in the world? In her brief commentary, Lydia H. Liu reflects on the contributions by Wang Hui and Fan-sen Wang, who offer illuminating analyses of the state of the humanities in contemporary China and Taiwan. In the past, upward mobility in East Asian societies often depended on one's hard work and superior command of the Confucian classics. Today, the legacy of meritocracy may still be alive and continue to be endorsed by the various governments, but the processes of globalization have introduced new factors, such as the hegemony of performance indexes and the journal impact factor, that are pushing the humanities (and sciences) in dangerous directions.

  • On the State of the Humanities in Taiwan
    • Authors: Wang; F.-s.
      Pages: 177 - 180
      Abstract: This article discusses various aspects of the current status of the humanities in Taiwan. First, the "indicator frenzy" that has prevailed in East Asia over the past twenty years has caused a major problem in humanities in Taiwan's academia. Second, in the past twenty years, the alienation of humanities scholars has arisen in Taiwan's academia. Third, Taiwan's lay culture is encountering challenges in the globalization trend.
