Body, Commodity, Text

Series editor(s):

Arjun Appadurai, Jean Comaroff, Judith Farquhar


Body, Commodity, Text promotes work that explores embodiment as a grounded material process inseparably entangled with the production of meaning and value. The triangle of themes which this series engages is of canonic importance for anthropology and critical cultural studies. At the same time it works at the nexus of some of the best recent critical work on technology, agency, language and ethics. The series grounds high theory in specific historical and spatial sites, and it responds to global and comparative impulses in social science, which are now more important than ever. The series attracts manuscripts to the press that are in the forefront of writing in anthropology proper and which also appeal to readers in the fields of history, literature, art history, media studies, politics, and sociology.
