BROWSE PRINCETON'S SERIES (by title) in Princeton Studies in Culture and Technology

Tom Boellstorff and Bill Maurer, Series Editors

The past decade has seen the emergence of new communities of social scientists, including but not limited to anthropologists, who extend classic ethnographic methods and questions into areas of pressing interest in technology and economics. Of particular concern are phenomena like old and new infrastructures and communications technologies, virtual sociality, reconfigured forms of finance and money, and the pervasiveness of online interaction in offline life. This ethnographically and historically informed research is built on strong interdisciplinary connections, often to fields as remote from anthropology as design and engineering. Yet such work is sometimes still assumed to lie at the margins of what anthropology represents in terms of fieldsites and research goals.

In response, this new series of monographs by single or multiple authors will present innovative, interdisciplinary work that examines the varied ways new technologies combine with older technologies and cultural understandings to shape novel forms of subjectivity, embodiment, knowledge, place, and community. Through inquiries into topics ranging from finance and online sociality to social and technological infrastructure, the series will provide a forum for work that incorporates attention to intersections of technology and value.

The goal of the series is to showcase the best work in this exciting new field of anthropological inquiry. By doing so, the series will demonstrate the relevance of anthropology to some of the most consequential and cutting-edge social, economic, and technological phenomena of our day—to emerging forms of digital culture in the broadest sense.
