Editorial Footnotes

Cultural Anthropology has published a range of articles on circulation and accumulation as cultural processes. See, for example, James Ferguson’s review "Cultural Exchange: New Developments in the Anthropology of Commodities" (1988); Anna Tsing’s "The Global Situation" (2000); and Karen Ho’s "Situating Global Capitalisms: A View from Wall Street Investment Banks" (2005).

Cultural Anthropology has also published other articles on the politics of indigeneity. See, for example, Faye Ginsburg’s "Indigenous Media: Faustian Contract or Global Village?" (1991); Andrea Muehlebach’s "‘Making Place’ at the United Nations: Indigenous Cultural Politics at the U.N. Working Group on Indigenous Populations" (2001); and Charles R. Hale’s "Activist Research v. Cultural Critique: Indigenous Land Rights and the Contradictions of Politically Engaged Anthropology" (2006).
