- Wright, Susan. Politicization of 'Culture'
Anthropology Today, Vol 14, No. 1, February 1998, pp. 7-15. Anthropologist Susan Wright deconstructs the way the concept of 'culture' is politicised in different environments. She demonstrates the re-emergence and re-evaluation of culture in fields like organisational management (a corporate culture), overseas development and the political domain itself. Wright is very concerned with who represents a culture and who has the definitional hegemony over this process.
