Citizenship, the self, and political agency

The special issue of Critique of Anthropology, titled ‘Citizenship, the self, and political agency’ is now published, and available online here

This came from a conference I organised with Monique Nuijten at CRASSH in Cambridge, of the same title. It’s good to finally see it in print, and I think that the articles are all excellent. Authors are entitled to share pdfs with individuals who contact them for research purposes, but I can’t post the pdfs on this site. Links below lead to the abstracts.
