About this book


Both an introduction to sensory ethnography and a bold display of the sophisticated use of the sensory for contemporary ethnography, Global South Ethnographies: Minding the Senses reflects both indigenous and non-mainstream takes on the sensory and the sensual in ethnographic practice.  The authors provide a collection of original and timely chapters from both the hegemonic northern and Global Southern hemispheres. As the chapters stem from across a variety of disciplines, the book gives us novel ways of determining and perceiving the sensory.
