The Malinowski Monographs

Malinowski Monographs Logo


The Malinowski Monographs showcase groundbreaking monographs that contribute to the emergence of new ethnographically-inspired theories. In tribute to the foundational, yet productively contentious, nature of the ethnographic imagination in anthropology, this series honors Bronislaw Malinowski, the coiner of the term “ethnographic theory.” The series publishes short monographs that develop and critique key concepts in ethnographic theory (e.g., money, magic, belief, imagination, world, humor, love, etc.), and standard anthropological monographs—based on original research—that emphasize the analytical move from ethnography to theory.
