James Boyd White Award

With this award we recognize and honor the originality and excellence of individual contributions to the field, and acknowledge our indebtedness to these individuals for their commitment to the interdisciplinary study of law, culture and the humanities.

Congratulations to the 2016 winner, Professor Carol Greenhouse. Carol is Arthur W. Marks Professor of Anthropology and Chair of the Department of Anthropology at Princeton University. Carol is a cultural anthropologist with primary interests in the ethnography of the law and politics. Her interests focus on the discursive and experiential dimensions of state power, especially federal power in the United States, and the reflexive and critical connections – in the U.S. and elsewhere – between ethnography and democracy. Her publications include A Moment's Notice: Time Politics Across CulturesPraying for Justice: Faith, Order, and Community in an American Town; and Law and Community in Three American Towns (with Barbara Yngvesson and David Engel).
