Ethnographies of Corruption

Abstracts are due to by April 8th.

Details: How is corruption created, transformed, and circulated as a social, legal, and political category? How do lawyers negotiate the distinction between legal and illegal conduct in corruption prosecutions? And how is evidence of corruption narratively and normatively constituted? This panel invites reflection on how corruption is formulated and deployed in everyday life. Ethnographic research is uniquely positioned to capture the contingency and complexity of this emergent and timely subject of anthropological study. Please email your abstract to no later than March 31.
