Ethnographic Studies in Subjectivity

The goal of this series is to provide a home within anthropology for books that address traditionally psychological or psychiatric topics from an ethnographic perspective. Reflecting a genuine shift in ethnographic writing, these books will affirm the basic commitments of the field while focusing on the exploration of mind, emotion, and experience: topics that come under the heading of human subjectivity.

Series Editors: Tanya M. Luhrmann, Stanford University
Steven M. Parish, UCSD
