Duke Featured Series
Series editors: Michael M. J. Fischer & Joseph Dumit
Experimental Futures brings together theoretically innovative, ethnographically rich interdisciplinary work that is emerging in response to the uneven networks and differentiating cultures brought about by globally extended, as well as locally produced, biotechnologies, information technologies, digital humanities, bio and electronic arts. Experimental Futures is home to scholarship produced at the intersection of anthropology, science and technology studies, medicine, political economy, and studies of new media and arts.
The Latin American Readers
Series editors: Robin Kirk & Orin Starn
This series, founded by Valerie Millholland, provides readers with a deep, human view of Latin America’s many faces. Each volume will focus on a single country and cover the main themes in its history and contemporary life, including migration and urbanization, racial and ethnic diversity, art and culture, war and political strife, women’s rights, the environment, economic reform, and democracy.
Theory in Forms
Series editors: Nancy Rose Hunt & Achille Mbembe
Theory in Forms presents new writing showcasing the import of new political contours in our planetary times of crisis, racializations, and securitization. The books address temporal and spatial scales—whether global, transnational, or intimate—and emphasize movement, borders, enclaves, and impasses in (post)colonies, global South(s), and beyond. Inciting experimentation with structure, methods, and the practice of writing, the series argues that form enables theory.
