Outsider Within: Reworking Anthropology in the Global Age

March 2008

Professor Faye V. Harrison- University of Florida

CCIE is please to announce the publication of CCIE Associate, Faye V. Harrison’s newest book, Outsider Within: Reworking Anthropology in the Global Age. The book “presents an approach to critically reconstructing the anthropology discipline to better encompass issues of gender and race. Among the nine key changes to the field that Faye V. Harrison advocates are researching in an ethically and politically responsible manner, promoting greater diversity in the discipline, rethinking theory, and committing to a genuine multicultural dialogue. In drawing from materials developed during her distinguished twenty-five-year career in Caribbean and African American studies, Harrison analyzes anthropology’s limits and possibilities from an African American woman’s perspective, while also challenging anthropologists to work together to transcend stark gender, racial, and national hierarchies.”
