“Encountering the Postmodern: New Directions in Cultural Anthropology”
“Encountering the Postmodern: New Directions in Cultural Anthropology.” Symposium issue titled “Cultural Studies in Canada: Sociological and Anthropological Perspectives.” Canadian Review of Sociology and Anthropology 28: 188-205.
Abstract: Drawing upon cultural studies literature, this article suggests that the condition of postmodernity poses new challenges to the field of cultural anthropology that go beyond (still significant) problem of ethnographic representation. Exploring the postmodernist project as one that involves a particular approach to cultural phenomena in a multinational global economy, the articles urges anthropologists to reconceive the concept of culture and explore the cultural politics of everyday life in the context of the global restructuring of capitalism.
