New Anthropologies of Europe: Perspectives and Provocations


The anthropology of Europe has dramatically shifted ground from its emergence in descriptive ethnography to the exploration of innovative theoretical and methodological approaches today. This series, relaunched by Berghahn Books with a new subtitle, invites proposals that speak to contemporary social and cultural theory through innovative ethnography and vivid description. Topics may include migration, human rights, and humanitarianism; historical, visual, and material anthropology; temporality and spatiality; gastro-politics; the role and changing status of the nation-state; and the neoliberal and audit-culture politics of Schengen and the European Union. Projects should appeal to audiences with interests transcending narrowly European concerns.
