Anthropology and Cultural Studies

Anthropology and Cultural Studies




In adopting an interdisciplinary approach to the anthropology of complex cultural issues, the contributors to this volume review both the challenges and the potential insights of cultural studies approaches within their field of research, and in the process chart a potentially new agenda for anthropology in an increasingly shared terrain of globally interacting cultures and identities. Case studies are drawn from around the globe, including Japan, Pakistan and Spain.
