A coherent body of anthropological work explicitly on the theme of citizenship can be said to have coalesced now. Anthropological analyses lead us to view citizenship as a set of practices especially related to participating in politics, and ethnographic focus on political claims-making as a practice of citizenship (e.g. Holston, Petryna) has yielded crucial insights into the relationship between people and the state, and between people and the law.
So, at this important conjuncture in the development of an anthropology of citizenship, this conference seeks to take stock and ask where might anthropological study of citizenship take us from here?
