About the Author

Gretchen Bakke, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, McGill University, Canada Marina Peterson, Associate Professor of Performance Studies, School of Interdisciplinary Arts, Ohio University, USA


"This volume of exuberant essays is infused with the demonstration of the close alignment of creative practices with modes of anthropological writing. Here a thematic emphasis on doing or making has produced an array of essay experiments representing among the most imaginative and grounded anthropologists working today. - George E. Marcus, University of California, Irvine, USA

Take a walk. Be sure to bring along this excellent book. Let its ideas and tones wash over what you see and hear. Things may begin to show their seams, revealing stitchwork to trace, new knots to make, the threads of little worlds to come. - Anand Pandian, Johns Hopkins University, USA

This weird and wonderful book will make you think differently about art, about anthropology, and about their unexpected intersections and collusions. If what we are doing becomes material, the authors of this work-in-common seem to be saying, we are also making art. Thisis the sort of book you might press into someone else's hands. It's a book that asks after, gestures towards and teaches you how to sense, the "muted registers of being and becoming" that are hidden in plain sight. - Lisa Stevenson, McGill University, Canada"
