About the Workshop on U.S. Locations:
The Workshop on U.S. Locations explores current ethnographic research in and in relation to North America. We examine what is distinctly American about particular U.S. sites, situations, and sensibilities, while we also seek to locate the U.S. transnationally. This year we are particularly interested in thinking together about the conditions of the (ethnographic) present. At what scales and in which jurisdictions are these conditions manifest? How can their complexity be rendered, anthropologically or otherwise? We’re also interested in thinking across different representational and nonrepresentational forms. We invite experimental papers and other media, and welcome ideas for experimental workshops.
