Across the globe, from farming communities in Mali and Nepal to barrios in Buenos Aires and reservations in South Dakota, people are experiencing and negotiating unprecedented social, cultural and economic transformations. In responding to the challenges and opportunities presented in this context, many individuals and communities are artfully producing meaningful and sustaining lifeworlds. The Carolina Academic Press Studies in Cultural Creativity Series will publish and promote innovative scholarship that explicitly addresses the dynamic nature of this cultural creativity in a wide variety of world contexts. Studies will emerge from the field of cultural anthropology and allied disciplines (such as art history, cultural studies, ethnomusicology, folklore, and performance studies). All contributions will be ethnographically rich, theoretically engaged, and stylistically concise. The scholarship published will be unique; the commentary, thought-provoking; and the writing, direct and unburdened.
The Studies in Cultural Creativity Series is edited by Stephen R. Wooten, University of Oregon.
