FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

Elizabeth Povinelli is Professor of Anthropology and Gender Studies at COlumbia University.  Her writing has focused on developing a critical theory of late liberalism that would support an anthropology of the otherwise. Her first two books examine the governance of the otherwise in late liberal settler colonies from the perspective of the politics of recognition. Her most recent two books examined the same from the perspective of intimacy, embodiment, and narrative form. Prof. Povinelli's ethnographic analysis is animated by a critical engagement with the traditions of American pragmatism and continental immanent theory.
