Cultural Anthropology Virtual Issue: Business Cultures

The SCA has released a free, virtual issue of Cultural Anthropology focused on Business Cultures. The issue includes five essays published between 2003-2009, as well as supplemental material and a discussion forum. An introduction by Esra Ozkan reads:

In response to the increasing encounters between global commodities and local markets, the recent economic crisis that has affected millions globally, the collapse of major financial institutions, and the escalating volatility of the corporate landscape, this Virtual Issue brings together five essays published by Cultural Anthropology which critically examine the theme of “business cultures.” The essays in this issue illustrate the multiplicity, contingency, and complexity of business cultures through their ethnographic approach to specific practices and locales. The authors featured in this issue explain, interpret, and critique business cultures across the globe and thus challenge the overarching notion of omnipotent and hegemonic capitalism. They illustrate how economic and financial practices heavily rely upon social negotiations, power relations, ethical and religious traditions, and cultural meanings and imaginaries.
