The March Anthropology News In Focus series on the place is now posted on our Current Featured News page, free to the public throughout the month, then available (along with the rest of March AN) via AnthroSource. This month’s In Focus essays are by Jenna Andrews-Swann, Adam Fish, Cynthia Fowler, Fethi Keles, Peter C Little, Alex Nading, Martha Radice, Robert R Sauders, Edward Snajdr and Shonna Trinch, James E Snead and Jay Sokolovsky. Also featured is an In Focus photo essay by Öykü Potuoğlu-Cook. The contributors explore the impact place has on people and communities, and the impact—literal and figurative—people have on place. Several contributors also examine what happens when people are faced with a lack of place, a place of conflict and the need to create a new place.
