The series Intimate Ethnography centers an “intimate other”—family members or close personal relations—as the subject of research and writing that are also studies of historically constituted circumstances. By drawing connections between these lives and larger processes, intimate ethnographies cut across disciplinary boundaries to bridge story and scholarship. The goal is to create accessible, evocative, and scholarly-informed narratives that illuminate the conditions and possibilities of human life.
