By only using one case study, Evans-Pritchard can delve deeper into the meaning of magic. Moreover, he physically immersed himself into the culture that he was…

Unlike other academic works up through the time of its publication (2007) which have tended to align a particular transgender experience with queer-studies (Feinberg 1997, Wilchins 2004), autobiographical/ “insider” narratives (Boylan 2003/2013; Bornstein 1993), or social service primers (Lev 2004), Valentine’s research instead…
