Podcast 'Anthropology of Political Assembly'

This monthly podcast, Anthropology of Political Assembly, convenes conversations with anthropologists and ethnographers whose work engages questions concerning notions of the political collective - things like crowds, people, publics, populations. The podcast is interested in exploring how such forms of political assembly are materially produced in time and space, and in the recursive relationship between political collectivities and their representations.
