In a post-colonial world, the contributions of anthropologists living outside North America and Western Europe can no longer be treated as marginal. World Anthropologies in Practice demonstrates how global dialogues enable us to draw on local knowledge as well as differences of perspective to help overcome anthropology's eternal struggle against ethnocentrism and to strengthen the subject's relevance to the contemporary world. Based on contributions to the ASA-sponsored IUAES World Anthropology Congress in Manchester, UK, this truly global book brings together a wide range of international scholars who might otherwise not talk to each other. Featuring articles from leading figures in the field such as Winnie Lem, Carmen Rial, Miriam Grossi, and Cristina Amescua, the volume covers topics as diverse as the mobility of Brazilian footballers, toilets in South Africa, trade unions in Nepal and South Africa, peace-building in southern Thailand, museological approaches in China, the Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami, immigration and race in the United States, and many more. Edited by John Gledhill, the text offers a much-needed insight into the way in which anthropology is developing worldwide and makes a tremendous contribution to the discussion of 'world anthropologies'. An important, timely work for students and researchers.

Fields in Motion: Ethnography in the Worlds of Dance examines the deeper meanings and resonances of artistic dance in contemporary culture. The book comprises four sections: methods and methodologies, autoethnography, pedagogies and creative processes, and choreographies as cultural and spiritual representations. The contributors bring an insiders insight to their accounts of the nature and function of these artistic practices, giving voice to dancers, dance teachers, creators, programmers, spectators, students, and scholars. International and intergenerational, this collection of groundbreaking scholarly research points to a new direction for both dance studies and dance anthropology. Traditionally the exclusive domain of aesthetic philosophers, the art of dance is here reframed as cultural practice, and its significance is revealed through a chorus of voices from practitioners and insider ethnographers.

Die Zeitschrift für Kulturwissenschaften dient als kritisches Medium für Diskussionen über »Kultur«, die Kulturwissenschaften und deren methodische Verfahren. Ausgehend vom internationalen Stand der Forschung sollen kulturelle Phänomene gleichermaßen empirisch konzis wie theoretisch avanciert betrachtet werden. Auch jüngste Wechselwirkungen von Human- und Naturwissenschaften werden reflektiert. Diese Ausgabe untersucht das soziale Phänomen der Diskriminierung. Was bedeutet Diskriminierung? Worauf basiert sie? Wie werden diskriminierende Merkmale identifiziert? Die Untersuchungen verbinden verschiedene Perspektiven, solche aus der Literatur- und Kulturwissenschaft, der Psychologie, der Medizin und der Sportwissenschaft.

In Tonga gilt als miserabler Erzähler, wer seine Zuhörer nicht zum Lachen bringt. Lach- und Lügengeschichten über seine kleine Insel im Pazifik erzählt auch Epeli Hau'ofa. Hier gelten ganz andere Regeln als für den Rest der Welt. Die größte Tugend ist heiteres Nichtstun, das allerdings immer wieder durch penetrante Entwicklungshelfer gestört wird. Sie haben die Insel als ideales Terrain für Hilfsprojekte entdeckt, was allerhand lästige Betriebsamkeit verursacht. Doch bald entwickeln sich die Bewohner zu international hochgeschätzten Experten im Einreichen korrekter Gesuche und Empfangen von Hilfe. Epeli Hau'ofas geschliffene Satiren funkeln vor Spott und Selbstironie und gehören heute zum grundlegenden Lesestoff und Denkanstoß der pazifischen Welt.
