Nomi Stone, Postdoctoral Fellow in Anthropology, is a finalist with the Atelier. Atelier is a newly launched book series from UC Press in anthropology designed to take a ground-up approach to the acquisition and publication of new ethnographic works. The aim is to set the conditions for collaboration at each stage of a book’s development, from the earliest draft through publication, providing not just meaningful feedback but also constructive engagement from peers and publishers. Rather than considering only those manuscripts in their finished state, this series sets out to curate a cohort of scholars committed to the idea that ethnographic writing is itself a form of intellectual work. Stone's current book manuscript in progress, "Human Technologies and the Making of American War" is a political phenomenology of American Empire, offering micro-histories of aspects of war’s present life across the Middle East and North America.
