Dear NET members and ethnographic theory enthusiasts,
We are happy to provide you with our sixth version of our ethnographic theory digest, bringing you a collection of interesting links, publications and resources from the anthro-internets.
- The Distributed Text: An Annotated Digital Edition of Franz Boas’s Pioneering Ethnography. An interactive prototype of Franz Boas’ seminal The Social Organization and the Secret Societies of the Kwakiutl Indians. The original 1895 text is also available on archive.org.
- Fields, Furrows, and Landmarks in History of Anthropology. History and Anthropology has resurrected its newsletter and has invited a series of notable scholars to reflect on the journal’s rich past and future.
- New open access issue on the theme of “ritual intimacy” by Suomen Anthropologi: Journal of the Finnish Anthropological Society. The issue also include an interview with Maurice Bloch.
- 70 (or so) Essential Books in Anthropology. AllegraLab asked its readers what they consider to be the most important books in the history of anthropology, and here are the results.
