Reconfiguring the Anthropology of Britain

Tuesday 11th April, 2017

This latest monograph challenges and disrupts traditional notions of the anthropology of Britain as simply the practice of social anthropology ‘at home’ by illuminating the ways in which this area of inquiry is outward looking in terms of its inter-disciplinary scope, theoretical, philosophical and social policy perspectives. Crucial to this endeavour is an exploration of the ways the ethnographic study of Britain contributes to issues and concerns that are central to anthropology and more broadly to sociological inquiry.

This monograph will not only affect the ways sociologists think about the potential contribution of the anthropology of Britain to their empirical and theoretical concerns, but will also impact upon how anthropology thinks about itself and its relationship to other disciplines.
