A new book series coming later in 2014 from Culture on the Edge invites respondents to work with the group on key theoretical issues of relevance to the study of identification. Each volume — edited by a different member of the group — tackles a specific topic, e.g., Origins, Strategic Essentialism, Authenticity, etc., and asks a set of new readers to work with revised posts that originally appeared at edge.ua.edu — pressing them forward, critiquing them, or providing further illustrations of social processes at work.

The Culture on the Edge book series publishes both monographs and collections of essays that explore the historicity of identity. Volumes in this series draw on ethnographic, textual, and theoretical research in any field or context that reveal ways that the image of stable selves and groups conceals the precarious and shifting nature of cultures.
