Focaal Volume 2016, Issue 76: Adivasi and Dalit political pathways in India

focaal_coverWe 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 “Adivasi and Dalit political pathways in India” and guest edited by Nicolas Jaoul and Alpa Shah, shows how political ethnographers of “insurgent citizenship” among Dalits and Adivasis offer a view from the suppressed margins of Indian society. The articles illustrate the way political subjectivities are being produced on the ground by confronting, negotiating, but also exceeding the state and its policed frameworks. The editors’ introduction is available to all readers for free.

Focaal 76 also includes a regular articles section, which features articles on informalization and differential subsumption in Thailand’s garment sector, transnational practices of Albanian migrants in Athens, and migrants’ imaginaries in Italy. Two book review articles round out the issue.
