AFTERWORD: Migrants, Anthropologists, and Writing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This volume obviously concerns migrant writing, and perhaps slightly less obviously migration studies in general. But this book also has profound implications for research, teaching, and policy in several scholarly fields, and certainly in anthropology in general.1 Affected by what this book’s contributors do here are our methods, our fieldwork, our travels, our writing, our reading, our publishing, and our standards for excellence and promotion. This is quite a claim, but I stand by it and will elaborate what I mean here by addressing two seemingly simple questions: (1) Who counts as a migrant? and (2) What does writing entail?.
