      Abstract: Earthling and Autisman Once upon a time on a small, green quiet planet. Autisman: So – welcome to my home world. Earthling: Don’t you feel weighed down' It feels as if I’ve got weights strapped to my arms and legs. Autisman: Ah, but on your planet, I always feel as if I’m swimming around in space, weightlessly. Earthling: Okay. Now I understand you. I really understand. (Higashida, 2007:74)

    • Authors: Molly Paechter

      Abstract: ‘It is common to compare
      the appointments of [mental
      asylums] in the present day very
      favourably with those of the past.
      Perhaps too much is said of this.’

  • Review of Les Travaux d’Hercule ou la Rocambole de la Fouterie by
           anonymous published in 1790

    • Authors: Raphael Killick
      Pages: 19 - 25
      Abstract: Labelled as pornographic in the late 18th century, obscene erotic texts and representations unveiled societal cultural taboos, forbidden desires and intimate thoughts of the people of their time. The narrative built around these sexual fantasies can, therefore, be understood as a carrier of collective representations, conscious or unconscious. The plethora of erotic texts produced during the French Revolution can, thus, be interpreted as symbolic of the political turmoil and social upheaval happening at the time.

  • Ethnographic Encounter With Historical Source Material

    • Authors: Xena White
      Pages: 26 - 34
      Abstract: The 18- stanza poem ‘The Bridge of Sighs’ (1844) was written in the early Victorian Era by Thomas Hood. It takes a progressive stance on the subject of a woman who due to her fall, commits suicide by drowning. The iconography of this poem must be understood not as a depiction of how female suicide took place in reality, but rather of how it took place in Victorian consciousness.

  • Intersectionality

    • Authors: Natalie Wong Jiayi
      Pages: 35 - 42
      Abstract: Introduction Before starting this reflective essay, I acknowledge that the work of feminist anthropologists is not timeless and covers a vast range of ideas such that I do not assert that my learning condensed here is in any way exhaustive. The poem I wrote below speaks to the unevenness of inequality, focusing on intersectionality, multiple axes of gendered inequality, and resistance through corporeal practices.

  • Against Hijras as the Quintessential 'Third Sex'

    • Authors: Xena White
      Pages: 43 - 48
      Abstract: Gender and sexuality studies are a hot topic in the field of anthropology, with certain groups of people being typified in these debates through the assumption of their sexual differences. Hijras, phenotypic men who undergo sacrificial emasculation and wear female attire, are such an identity under the scrutiny of researchers that have aimed to capture their lives, or a limited version of them, for application within their ethnographies, films, or newspaper projects.

  • ‘With Respect to sex: negotiating hijra identity in South

    • Authors: Romany Howarth
      Pages: 49 - 55
      Abstract: In 1996, anthropologist Gayatri Reddy conducted an intensive study of a group of hijras in the South Indian twin cities Hyderabad and Secunderabad through participant observation. Several years later, in 2005, Reddy published her experiences and analysis of the life of the hijras as an outstanding and insightful ethnographic account titled With Respect to Sex: negotiating hijra identity in South India.

  • Review of Fear and Fortune

    • Authors: Anna Todsen
      Pages: 56 - 63
      Abstract: Mette High’s Fear and Fortune is an anthropological text which explores how Mongolians in Uyanga adapt to and navigate the artisanal mining (ninja mining) as a viable and preferred way of life to herding. Fraught with issues of pollution (as a social ordering concept) and morality, ninja mining and gold money carries with it great risk of misfortune. With an extended fieldwork spanning two-and-a-half years, High unpacks how the cosmoeconomy of the Mongolian gold rush in Uyanga challenges conventional ideas of economics, exchange, money, and morality.

  • Examining Concepts of Reflexivity and Positionality in Native and
           Indigenous Research Methods

    • Authors: Elizabeth Violaris
      Pages: 64 - 70
      Abstract: The progression of anthropology as a discipline has long been recorded as having a mutually reinforcing relationship with colonial discourses of power (see particularly Lewis 1973, Pels 1997). This has created a multitude of power dynamics which infiltrate research methods on both micro and macro levels. Thus, reflexivity and positionality have emerged as two crucial elements of the ethnographic process in order to allow for a critical examination of these power dynamics.

  • Student Use of Facebook Messenger in St Andrews

    • Authors: Kristen Castro
      Pages: 71 - 78
      Abstract: I am sitting in my flat’s lounge, at the large table across from two of my flat mates. The sunshine gleams in and out through the clouds and our large bay windows, reflecting off our computer screens as Ella stands up to close the drapes. This is a familiar scene in my flat: a few of us gathered around the wooden table that has become our designated shared space to do coursework whilst engaging each other socially every now and then. Julia begins to talk about how she needs to message someone about an upcoming event that she been promoting, and then complains at their response to her message with a “heart react”.

  • The Social Life in a 19th Century Engraved Drawing of St Salvator’s
           Chapel in St Andrews

    • Authors: Xiantian Ma
      Pages: 79 - 86
      Abstract: During the summer vacation of 2020, I bought a 19th-century engraved drawing from an online used-bookstore in Beijing depicting St Salvator’s Chapel in St Andrews. After researching the artist, I found it was originally a book page detached from The Baronial and Ecclesiastical Antiquities of Scotland written and illustrated by Robert. W. Billings (1845). As a Chinese student studying at the University of St Andrews, I was very excited to have it in my collection, for it has traveled from the UK to China and resembles my own experience of being an international member of the community.
