Berghahn Journals: New Issues Published in April

 

    

Social Analysis

The International Journal of Anthropology

Volume 62, Issue 1 

This issue of Social Analysis opens with an interview Editor Martin Holbraad gave for the Berghahn Blog. The interview is followed by a forum focusing on the theme “What is ‘Analysis’?” The series of short think pieces are based on a round-table discussion between an array of top anthropologists at the 2017 AAA Meeting in Washington DC. This section is available for all to access! The articles in this issue range from the role of smiling as a performative gesture to cultural concepts of self, subjectivity, and person in performing stand-up comedy. The issue concludes with book reviews.

Aspasia

The International Yearbook of Central, Eastern, and Southeastern European Women’s and Gender History

The thematic focus of the twelfth volume of Aspasia is women and violence. The articles in this section discuss issues extending from war and state terror to domestic violence and other manifestations of violence in the personal sphere. Also featured are two general articles that touch on topical themes related to the construction of national identity. Other sections include Research Notes, which introduces the work of the Children Born of War (CHIBOW) network, The Source, and a tribute to prominent Turkish feminist scholar Şirin Tekeli. The volume concludes with reviews.
