Product Details

Praise

“This book will inspire any anthropologist concerned about how we join together while recognizing difference in our many communities near and far…The book is not a finished product but an opening of process, proof that a yuta anthropology is not only powerful but possible. While immensely innovative, this is also a mature, masterfully crafted ethnography: what is not said is as important as what is and has been given just as much thought.”
American Anthropologist

Phone & Spear does not make an argument but performs it. Its form is perhaps the most inventive of any ethnography I’ve read.”
—Zeynep Devrim Gürsel, American Anthropologist

“Collectively authored by seven members of the Northern Australian-based Miyarrka Media, Phone & Spear is one of the most creative and unique anthropological texts to be published in recent memory. Proposing a Yuta, or “new,” anthropology from Yolngu perspectives, the full color photo quality pages interweave a discursive collage of images, artwork, commentary, dialogue, and analysis that is simultaneously ahead of its time and long overdue.”
—William Lempert, Anthropological Quarterly
