Over time, the role of nature in anthropology has evolved from being a mere backdrop for social and cultural diversity to being viewed as an integral part of the ontological entanglement of human and nonhuman agents. This transformation of the role of nature offers important insight into the relationships between diverse anthropological traditions. By highlighting natural-cultural worlds alongside these traditions, Multiple Nature-Cultures, Diverse Anthropologies explores the potential for creating more sophisticated conjunctions of anthropological knowledge and practice.

Casper Bruun Jensen is honorary lecturer at Leicester University. He is the author of Ontologies for Developing Things (Sense, 2010) and Monitoring Movements in Development Aid (with Brit Ross Winthereik) (2013, MIT) and the editor of Deleuzian Intersections: Science, Technology, Anthropology with Kjetil Rödje (Berghahn, 2009) and Infrastructures and Social Complexity with Penny Harvey and Atsuro Morita (Routledge, 2016).

Atsuro Morita is Associate Professor of Science, Technology and Culture at Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Osaka University. He is a co-editor of The World Multiple: Quotidian Politics of Knowing and Generating Entangled Worlds (with Keiichi Omura, Grant Otsuki and Shiho Satsuka) and Infrastructure and Social Complexity (with Penny Hervey and Casper Bruun Jensen) both from Routledge.
