Wayne Fife has a new book accepted for publication by Palgrave-Macmillan. The book is entitled Imaginary Worlds (Invitation to an Argument) and will appear as part of the series Palgrave Studies in Literary Anthropology. The volume illustrates the uses imaginary worlds can be put to for testing anthropological theory and for teaching key lessons in anthropology both inside and outside of the classroom. It further argues that contemporary forms of economic and existential alienation are fueling an increase in participation in imaginary worlds – a trend that Fife expects to continue for the foreseeable future. The book is currently in press and will be in print by the late summer.
