Signifying Identities: Anthropological Perspectives on Boundaries and Contested Values

 
13

Signifying Identities examines the ways in which relations between national, ethnic,  and gender groups are underpinned by each group's perceptions of their distinctive identities and of the nature of the boundaries which divide them. Questions of frontier and identity are theorized with reference to the Maori, Australian aborigines and Celtic groups. The theoretical arguments and ethnographic perspectives presented in these essays place this collection at the cutting edge of contemporary anthropological scholarship on identity, with respect to the study of ethnicity, nationalism, localism, gender and indigenous people.
