HAU is delighted to present:

THE CENTRE OF ETHNOGRAPHIC THEORY 
(SOAS, University of London)

We are delighted to inform you of the Foundation of the Centre of Ethnographic Theory (CET) at SOAS, University of London. The Centre will host administratively the Society for Ethnographic Theory (SET) and the open-access work of HAU Journal and HAU Books, in addition to bringing together a range of ethnographic and theoretical work, scholarly events, and helping facilitate the fund-raising for such activities. Special thanks go to David Mosse (Head of the Anthropology & Sociology Department at SOAS), Ed Simpson, and Fabio Gygi for their brilliant work in setting up the Centre. We plan to hold an inaugural event in early 2016 and we will inform you of this and our future projects in due course.

HAU Books (www.haubooks.org) is pleased to release:

FOUR LECTURES ON ETHICS: ANTHROPOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVES
by Michael Lambek, Veena Das, Didier Fassin, and Webb Keane

232 pp. | 6x9 | $19.99 USD

read full text here: http://haubooks.org/four-lectures-on-ethics/
order hardcopy here: http://ow.ly/UJBlc

Responding to the challenges from the worlds they study and reflecting critically on their own practice, anthropologists have recently devoted new attention to ethics and morality. This masterclass brings together four of the most eminent scholars working in this field—Michael Lambek, Veena Das, Didier Fassin, and Webb Keane—to discuss, in a lecture format, the way in which anthropology faces contemporary ethical issues and moral problems.
 
Rather than treating ethics as an object or as an isolable domain in moral theory, the authors are interested in grasping how the ethical and the moral emerge from social actions and interactions, how they are related to historical contexts and cultural settings, how they are transformed through their confrontation with the political, and how they are, ultimately, an integral part of life. Contrasting in their perspectives and methods, but developing a lively conversation, this masterclass provides four distinct voices to compose what will be an essential guide for an anthropology of the ethical and the moral in the twenty-first century.

HAU Books (www.haubooks.org) is pleased to release:

TRANSLATING WORLDS: THE EPISTEMOLOGICAL SPACE OF TRANSLATION
Edited by William F. Hanks and Carlo Severi

338 pp. | 6x9 | $15.99 USD

order here: http://ow.ly/UJBul

Set against the backdrop of anthropology's recent focus on various "turns" (whether ontological, ethical, or otherwise), this pathbreaking volume returns to the question of knowledge and the role of translation as a theoretical and ethnographic guide for twenty-first century anthropology, gathering together contributions from leading thinkers in the field: Adam Yuet Chau, Emmanuel de Vienne, Carlos Fausto, William F. Hanks, John Leavitt, Geoffrey E. R. Lloyd, Bruce Mannheim, Alan Rumsey, Carlo Severi, Rupert Stasch, and Anne-Christine Taylor.

Since Ferdinand de Saussure and Franz Boas, languages have been seen as systems whose differences make precise translation nearly impossible. And still others have viewed translation between languages as principally indeterminate. The contributors here argue that the challenge posed by the constant confrontation between incommensurable worlds and systems may be the most fertile ground for state-of-the-art ethnographic theory and practice. Ranging from tourism in New Guinea to shamanism in the Amazon to the globally ubiquitous restaurant menu, the contributors mix philosophy and ethnography to redefine translation not only as a key technique for understanding ethnography but as a larger principle in epistemology

HAU Books (www.haubooks.org) is also pleased to announce a forthcoming title, to be releaed in December 2015 (with a preview available at the AAA reception — see below):

THE RELATIVE NATIVE: ESSAYS ON INDIGENOUS CONCEPTUAL WORLDS
by Eduardo Viveiros de Castro with an afterword by Roy Wagner

360 pp. | 6x9 | $24.99 USD

pre-order here: http://ow.ly/UJBxX

This volume is the first to collect the most influential essays and lectures of Eduardo Viveiros de Castro. Published in a wide variety of venues, and often difficult to find, the pieces are brought together here for the first time in one major volume, which includes his momentous 1998 Cambridge University Lectures, "Cosmological Perspectivism in Amazonia and Elsewhere." Rounded out with new English translations of previous works, the resulting book is a wideranging portrait of one of the towering figures of contemporary thought—philosopher, anthropologist, ethnographer, ethnologist, and more. With a characteristic afterword by Roy Wagner, elucidating Viveiros de Castro's influence and engaging with his arguments, The Relative Native further cements Viveiros de Castro's position at the center of contemporary anthropological theory.
