About the Author

William Elison is assistant professor of religious studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara.


"Elison offers a remarkable, persuasive, and--notwithstanding its theoretical and ethnographic rigor and ambition--accessible argument. The Neighborhood of Gods extends the emerging anthropology of the image, working across generic and disciplinary conventions to assess the visual practices by which space is made sacred and the precariousness of marginal labor and habitation is negotiated in urban India. It is a resonant portrait of a city that integrates the best of recent writing on religion and secularism, on Bollywood film, on slums and work, and on dreams, spirits, and the uncanny--and rethinks it mightily."--Lawrence Cohen, University of California, Berkeley "The Neighborhood of Gods is an ambitious, deeply erudite, and well-written book that moves across diverse ethnographic sites--from Hindu religious ritual to tribal practice, to Bollywood and urban politics in Mumbai--with an engaging style and innovative research."--Arvind Rajagopal, New York University
