Curated Bibliographies

  • Decolonizing/decanonizing Economic Anthropology
    This document has been compiled from a list of recommendations from SEA members and friends following a call for “resources and anthropological perspectives on the ‘economy’—beyond our already well established ‘dead white guy, educated in the west’ canon.” The list includes recommendations for new historical “ancestors” and contemporary authors with diverse perspectives. It also includes resources that can help our students to understand the essential role that economics and economic policy have played in racial and ethnic oppression, regardless of the author’s ancestry and positionality.

    If you would like to suggest additional resources, please email Kristin Phillips (kdphill@emory.edu) or Bram Tucker (bramtuck@uga.edu).

  • Poverty
    This document has been compiled from a list of recommendations from SEA listserv members in reply to a request for readings about the lived experiences of poverty. If you would like to suggest additional resources, please email Bram Tucker (bramtuck@uga.edu).

Suggested assignments and activities:

The ever-generous members of the SEA, in response to a list-serv inquiry, offered suggestions for classroom activities and assignments for undergraduate courses in economic anthropology. Those responses have been complied by Charles Dolph in this PDF file. LINK
