Ethnographic theory Digest 2018 vol. 9

Dear NET members,

We are happy to bring you another version of our ethnographic theory digest. Before that, we are even happier to announce that NET will be partaking in this year’s EASA 2018 in Stockholm with a panel on the theme of Xenophilia. We urge our members to have a look and share the abstract and to apply with their papers! You can access the abstract of the panel and propose papers through this link: https://nomadit.co.uk/easa/easa2018/conferencesuite.php/panels/6688
