My aim is to tease out some of the meanings implied in cross-culturally distinct solutions to the protection of sleepers at night. I proceed by contrasting ethnographic data from the remote Aboriginal settlement of Yuendumu, Northern Territory with select elements of the cultural history of Euro-American sleep.

I contrast this with Euro-American ways of providing a sense of safety to the sleeper through practices of domestic fortification. My comparison revolves around the notion of sight, which in the Euro-American West is clearly linked to ideas of knowledge, and at Yuendumu, as I demonstrate, imbued with a sense of care. I conclude by relating the gained insights to participant observation as anthropological method. Warungka: Becoming and Un-becoming a Warlpiri Person.

Foreword. — NYU Scholars
Drawing on data from participant observation with Warlpiri people at Yuendumu, an Aboriginal settlement in central Australia, I present three ethnographic vignettes of Warlpiri sleeping arrangements. I interpret sleeping arrangements as culturally readable expressions of the current state of social relations and as expressive of personal states of being.
Out of a host of possibilities, in this paper, I focus on sleep and anger, compassion, and melancholy respectively. Through these readings, I demonstrate how analysis of sleep is productive in affording insights into the Warlpiri lifeworld. Introduction: Monsters, Anthropology, and Monster Studies. In this introduction, Musharbash provides a concise overview over what interdisciplinary monster studies and anthropology, respectively, can gain from engaging with each other.
Monster Anthropology in Australasia and Beyond. The monsters that anthropologists encounter in their field sites differ significantly from those portrayed and analyzed in the thriving interdisciplinary literature—anthropology's monsters haunt off the pages of books and screens of The monsters that anthropologists encounter in their field sites differ significantly from those portrayed and analyzed in the thriving interdisciplinary literature—anthropology's monsters haunt off the pages of books and screens of televisions.
These monsters come in all sorts of non-gothic guises, and their presence is inextricably intertwined with the lives of those they haunt.
Offering a dialogue between anthropology and literature, media, and cultural studies, this book presents fine-grained ethnographic vignettes of monsters dwelling in the contemporary world, from Aboriginal Australia in the Pacific to Asia and Europe. Geir Henning Presterudstuen.
Based on deep ethnography from central Australia, Musharbash analyses the meanings that flow from the transformation of Jarnpa, a monster that haunted pre-contact Warlpiri people, into Kurdaitcha, who terrorize contemporary Warlpiri Based on deep ethnography from central Australia, Musharbash analyses the meanings that flow from the transformation of Jarnpa, a monster that haunted pre-contact Warlpiri people, into Kurdaitcha, who terrorize contemporary Warlpiri people living in settlements across the Tanami Desert. By detailing the dramatic and tumultuous changes experienced as well as embodied by both the monsters and their human victims, Musharbash presents a cross-culturally comparative case of monstrous transformation akin to but different from that argued by Auerbach for vampires.
Musharbash concludes by refracting the monster-Warlpiri case material against the third party present in central Australia—non-Indigenous Australians—and situates monstrous transformation squarely within the terrifying realities of neocolonial Australia.
