This book which is edited by Arnd Schneider and Caterina Pasqualino urges a new dialogue between two seemingly separate fields. The book explores the practical and theoretical challenges arising from experimental film for anthropology, and vice versa, through a number of contact zones: trance, emotions and the senses, materiality and time, non-narrative content and montage. Experimental film and cinema are understood in this book as broad, inclusive categories covering many technical formats and historical traditions, to investigate the potential for new common practices. Arnd Schneider who has co-written the introduction also contributed the chapter "Stills that Move: Photofilm and Anthropology".

Sindre Bangstad has argued that contemporary conceptions of freedom of expression among liberal media editors in Norway are suggestive of a hierarchisation of human rights in which freedom of expression is posited as an absolute and inalienable right,overriding all other rights and concerns, such as concerns relating to rights to non-discrimination.

Animal domestication is a dynamic and open-ended process which potentially transforms both the animal and its surroundings. Using the case of Atlantic salmon, John Law and Marianne Lien describes a series of scientific and fish-farming practices, based on fieldwork in West Norway. They show how different salmon are being enacted within those different practices, and explore the precarious choreographies of those practices, and the ways in which they enact agency and also work to generate Otherness. Their article is part of the project 'Newcomers to the farm, Atlantic salmon between the wild and the industrial'.

Land continues to be a contentious issue in much of sub-Saharan Africa. Recently, a new form of conflict over land has received much attention. Knut G. Nustad and Frode Sundnes claim that in the case they study, the nature of the land itself is at stake. The wetland area, which served as hunting grounds in the past, was transformed into productive fields. This struggle over the nature of the land lies at the heart of the controversy surrounding the land claim.

Cecilia G. Salinas i en artikkel i Norsk antropologisk tidsskrift drøfter sammenhengen mellom nyliberale økonomiske reformer og begrepet håp i forhold til tremasseindustrien i Uruguay. Artikkelen er basert på en empirisk studie av etableringen av en finsk tremassefabrikk i en landsby i Uruguay. Hun argumenterer for viktigheten av begrepet håp som analytisk verktøy i studier av kapitalisme, og understreker at håp har en narrativ struktur.
