Fordham Featured Series

Thinking from Elsewhere

Series editors: Clara Han, Bhrigupati Singh & Andrew Brandel

Thinking from Elsewhere publishes books animated by three touchstones at the heart of the anthropological endeavor: first, a conceptual labor that struggles with and occasionally displaces habitual categories of thought; second, an ethnographic labor animated by a desire to be attentive to life in its singularities; and third, a sustained engagement with other forms of knowledge, without a stable agreement on where knowledge might be found.

Fordham Series in Medieval Studies

Series editors: Mary Erler & Franklin Harkins

The Fordham Series in Medieval Studies publishes innovative studies utilizing interdisciplinary methods, especially cross-cultural studies. The series offerings include original studies, translations, multiauthor volumes, and source materials on late antique and medieval culture.
