Call for Papers - Edited volume(s) on the International Anthropology of
​We are working to publish an edited volume (or even volumes) on the
anthropology of the U.S. and are looking for possible inclusions.
​For several years now, a group of anthropologists located outside
the US have come
together with US-based anthropologists to share and discuss their field work
experiences and research - their study of and in the US. In their effort to
cultivate "the development of a different kind of international
scholarship on the
United States, one that truly decenters U.S. scholarship while challenging
new formulations, new questions, and new critiques" ("Rethinking American
a Critical Internationalism," American Quarterly 1996:484), Virginia
Jane Desmond, co-founded the International Forum for US Studies (IFUSS)
has emerged the "international anthropology of the United States." For
information about IFUSS, please check the website:
​In our effort to "reconceive of the U.S., or the more metaphorical
'America,' as a
complex imaginary" ("Towards a prismatic 'American Studies'," Safundi
have gathered together research ranging from the study of the media and
migration, dance and performance, sexual identity, activism, and the
everyday life. In our work, "'America' is not a thing, a place, an idea,
political 'entity.' It is, rather, all of these and the multiple and
ways in which it is imagined, i.e., called into being, named, understood,
produced, used, and experienced by individuals, groups, and states around
​To date, those directly engaged in these conversations are
professors Helena Wulff
(Sweden), Ulf Hannerz (Sweden), Moshe Shokeid (Israel), Jasmin Habib
Keiko Ikeda (Japan). While the range of the research is wide,
attention has been focused on the study of the US by those located outside
borders. In this call for papers, we seek to fill that gap by bringing to
focus empirical as well as theoretical implications for anthropological
