Dr. Brandon Lundy becomes editor of Economic Anthropology

Dr. Brandon Lundy, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Associate Director of the School of Conflict Management, Peacebuilding & Development, recently became the new editor of the peer-reviewed journal Economic Anthropology.

As the journal's aims and scope state, "Economic Anthropology is published by the Society for Economic Anthropology (SEA) to make available research that is innovative and interdisciplinary and focused on economic and social life to serve scholars, practitioners, and general audiences. Contributors to the journal represent a wide range of disciplines including cultural anthropology, archaeology, sociology, demography, economics, ecology, geography, and history."

In his forthcoming editorial for the next issue of Economic Anthropology, Dr. Lundy states, "I envision my role as Economic Anthropology editor as promoting and facilitating active and engaged dialogues within (and beyond) the field of economic anthropology. As someone who has worked interdisciplinarily for many years, I intend to expand Economic Anthropology's reach to a broader audience. Furthermore, I have a wide-ranging sense of the field, having researched and written about topics including entrepreneurship, tourism, development and foreign aid, commodification, globalization, resource management, sociocultural capital, migration, sustainable livelihoods, international trade, values, risk and resilience, ecology, corruption, donor decline/withdrawal, cooperation and conflict, and agriculture and production, among many other topics...Given the success of past editors in establishing the journal's prominence, over the next few years, I will seek to provide continuity and stability so that Economic Anthropology has an opportunity to mature into a flagship journal."
