Anthropology, Culture and Society explores what anthropology can contribute to the challenges of the 21st century. This series is a distinctive contribution to discussions that are often dominated by politics and economics. The books are inspired by traditions of ethnographic research and anthropological analysis to address power and social change while keeping the struggles and stories of people centre stage. The authors offer progressive interventions and critical engagements for informed audiences across the arts, humanities and social sciences. The series editors are Holly High, ARC Future Fellow and Associate Professor at Deakin University and Joshua O. Reno, Associate Professor of Anthropology at Binghamton University.
