The Bureau for Experimental Ethnography is hosting an ex-situ project organized by Yoke Sum Wong and Craig Campbell.
With the much-anticipated publication of Diary of a Detour (Duke University Press, 2020), we would like to put together a special presentation of writing in honour of Lesley Stern. This will be hosted online by the Bureau for Experimental Ethnography at the University of Texas at Austin (www.bureauXethnography.net).
For many of us who know her, as friends, students, colleagues, and ad- mirers, it is recognized that Lesley’s work has had tremendous influence across the academy, and in the public realm. She has over the years shared her time generously as teacher, writer, mentor, friend and public intellectual – always inspiring us with her remarkable scholarship and writing. In her latest book, she continues to exhort us to think beyond the chronic and to turn our attention to the immediate world of the multispe- cies and the material world of objects and things that resonate with us.
Deadline for Submissions (or at least statements of interest): December 15, 2020.
