Public Culture

Vol. 11, no. 2 (1999); Vol. 12 (2000) - vol. 16 (2004)

For fifteen years Public Culture has been publishing field-defining ethnographies and analyses of cultural studies. Public Culture essays have mapped the capital, human, and media flows drawing cities, peoples, and states into transnational relationships and political economies. Anthropologists, historians, sociologists, artists, and scholars of politics, literatures, architecture, and the arts have made groundbreaking contributions in the pages of Public Culture.
