2017 CSSH Articles Featured in American Anthropologist’s Year in Review

CSSH is a resolutely interdisciplinary journal, but we cannot help noting (with pride) that nine of our 2017 essays were recently mentioned in Noah Tamarkin‘s annual review of noteworthy publications in anthropology, “Time and Relational Possibility: Cultural Anthropology in 2017,” which appears in the current issue of AMERICAN ANTHROPOLOGIST (free to access through the end of August 2018, courtesy of Wiley).

Here are Tamarkin’s picks that Cambridge University Press has made free to access:

Allen, Lori A., “Determining Emotions and the Burden of Proof in Investigative Commissions to Palestine.”
To learn more about the “Behind the Scenes” research that led to this essay, read Allen’s essay for CSSH, “Reflections of a Novice Spelunker in the Archives.”

Bond, David, “Oil in the Caribbean: Refineries, Mangroves, and the Negative Ecologies of Crude Oil.”

Gilbert, Andrew, “The Limits of Foreign Authority: Publicity and the Political Logic of Ambivalence in Postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina.”

Kea, Pamela, and Katrin Maier, “Challenging Global Geographies of Power: Sending Children Back to Nigeria from the United Kingdom for Education.”

Li, Tania Murray, “The Price of Un/Freedom: Indonesia’s Colonial and Contemporary Plantation Labor Regimes.”
Read more about Li’s research in her “Under the Rubric” conversation with fellow CSSH authors R. Alan Covey and Kylie E. Quave, “Land and Labor Regimes.”

Maxwell, Krista,“Settler-Humanitarianism: Healing the Indigenous Child-Victim.”
Take a look at Maxwell’s “Under the Rubric” conversation with fellow CSSH author Uditi Sen, “Registers of Indigeneity.”

Muehlebach, Andrea, “The Body of Solidarity: Heritage, Memory, and Materiality in Post-Industrial Italy.”

Sen, Uditi, “Developing Terra Nullius: Colonialism, Nationalism, and Indigeneity in the Andaman Islands.”
Together with Krista, Maxwell, Sen participated in our “Under the Rubric” conversation, “Registers of Indigeneity.”

Yeh, Rihan. 2017. “Visas, Jokes, and Contraband: Citizenship and Sovereignty at the Mexico-U.S. Border.”

Congrats to these conspicuously anthropological authors. Let’s hope the extra appreciation widens their readerships, within the tribe and beyond. And to Noah Tamarkin, thanks for showcasing the innovative anthropology that happens between the brilliant green covers of CSSH.
