Off Stage/ On Display: Intimacy and Ethnography in the Age of Public Culture Book Description

"The problem of intimacy and mediation is a fascinating and vital one for contemporary anthropology, particularly as more and more ethnographers come to engage with public cultural forms and processes. To the best of my knowledge, no other work has tackled this problem in such depth and from such a variety of perspectives. This work fills a significant gap in the literature on the ethnography of public culture." --Dominic Boyer, Cornell University
"This is a book of major importance in relation to the intellectual, practical, and political problems that have beset the field of anthropology. It recognizes the dangerous politics of cultural revelation, but insists that the alternative--the refusal to recognize cultural realities in favor of a bland discourse of identities--is unsatisfactory." --Sherry Ortner, Professor of Anthropology, Columbia University
