Ethnographic theory Digest 2019 vol. 6

A short digest from us this month, but we will have a new guest reading list this week. Also, one last chance to submit an abstract for our NET sponsored panel on “Anthropologies, Futures, and Predictions” at the Biennial Conference of the Finnish Anthropological Society 29-30 August 2019, in Helsinki.


A fantastic new piece on PowerPoint and corporate Korea by Michael Prentice in American Anthropologist (see his reading list for us here at the NET last year)

For the title alone, but also for the subgenre of theoretically and ethnographically revisiting the milieus of previous generations of anthropologists, Knut Christian Myhre’s piece in JRAI

Joseph Streeter’s new piece in Anthropological Theory on belief



Stuart Kirsch’s important book from last year in engaged anthropology

Joelle Bahloul’s book from the 1990s on domesticity and microhistory

Although not out yet, looking forward to the publication of the Fernando Coronil Reader published next month, and maybe it pushes us to go reread his work now.
