Ok ok I know it is a snarky title, but I can’t help but notice that the “latest issue”:http://www.anthrosource.net/toc/an/2006/47/6 of Anthropology News has a special section on ‘neoliberalism’, a topic Savage Minds first covered four months ago. At this rate we should see papers in Anthropology News on the concept of assemblage, friction, the ethnography of the state, and Moving To Finland in the next six months or so.
Of course, to be fair Savage Minds comes with bonus typos, and neoliberalism has been on anthropology’s radar for just about a decade now. But still.
UPDATE: As requested, here are links to entries on neoliberalism:
