Anthropological Horizons: An Interview with Series Editor Michael Lambek

In addition to all of the work we do in the Higher Education Division of University of Toronto Press to publish materials for undergraduate anthropology students—especially the Teaching Culture series of classroom ethnographies—we are fortunate to work alongside colleagues in our Scholarly Publishing Division who have as their focus the publication of new scholarship.
