"Pursuing Happiness as a Political Project: Black Women, Travel, and the Promise of Diaspora"

In recent years, the Movement for Black Lives has elevated Audre Lorde’s notion that self-care is a political act, pushing us to have a national conversation about effective strategies for maintaining emotional wellness in the context of white supremacy and patriarchy. The discussion is one Black feminists have been engaging in for generations, attempting to find ways to be well, and remain well, despite the disproportionate amount of emotional labor Black women are expected to provide in organizing spaces, their households, neighborhoods, and on their jobs.

Microbiosociality: Sensory Ecologies of Ritual Life in Amazonia

In the wake of recent research showing that most of the cells and genes in a human body are non-human, there has been an explosion of interest in microbes’ roles in social life. For anthropologists, attention to microbial relations can illuminate how meanings, materials, memories, and emotions entwine as human and non-human beings co-produce and co-configure local life-worlds.
