We are pleased to announce that the latest issue of Focaal – Journal of Global and Historical Anthropology has recently published and is available online at its new home, www.berghahnjournals.com/focaal.
This issue’s theme section, titled “After dispossession” and guest edited by Oscar Salemink and Mattias Borg Rasmussen, addresses how seemingly global processes become entangled in local affairs in sub-Saharan Africa, a former Soviet republic, and Latin America. The editors’ introduction is available to all readers for free, and “Reclaiming the lake” is also temporarily free as a part of Berghahn’s Earth Day virtual issue.
Focaal 74 also includes a regular articles section and a forum piece by FocaalBlog’s very own Edward Simpson. As always, forums are freely available to all readers.
