From the outset, Cultural Anthropology has published articles engaging with science and technology. For example, an early essay of Michael M.J. Fischer's, "Scientific Dialogue and Critical Hermeneutics" (1988). The essay by Emily Martin, "The Ethnography of Natural Selection in the 1990s" and David Hess' comments capture the critical import of these topics (1994). Also available is a special issue devoted to these intersections, introduced by Daniel A. Segal's "Editor's Note: On Anthropology and/in/of Science." (2001). See also Gary Lee Downey, Joseph Dumit, and Sarah Williams' essay, "Cyborg Anthropology" (1995).

Over the last twenty years, Cultural Anthropology has published a range of articles on South Asia. Authors have examined how hierarchy and caste have been constructed and queried in the anthropological literature, how local and global forces have cross pollinated and take on new meanings, and changing understandings of freedom and citizenship amidst the rise of professional classes. The topical breadth of these essays is impressive, including globalization and neoliberalism, nationalism, rural political movements, dance and media.
