Anthropology of Europe

Europe is the latest region to attract anthropological research and a region whose variety and speed of change constitutes the strongest challenge to classical anthropology. Situated at the frontier with other social sciences and humanities, the anthropology of Europe has been bred by ethnology, anthropology, folklore, cultural studies before engaging in innovative interdisciplinary approaches. "Anthropology of Europe" publishes fieldwork monographs by young or established scholars, as well as collective or edited volumes on particular regions or aspects of European society. The series pays special attention to studies with a strong comparative component – addressing theoretical questions of interest both to anthropologists and to other scholars working in the general field of social science and the humanities.
