Cultural Horizons Prize
The Society for Cultural Anthropology (SCA) is happy to announce that the 2020 winner of the annual Cultural Horizons Prize is Bo Kyeong Seo (Yonsei University) for her article, "Populist Becoming: The Red Shirt Movement and Political Affliction in Thailand."
This year''s jury of doctoral students (Thomas Thornton, Johns Hopkins University; Mary Pena, University of Michigan; Deniz Coral, University of Minnesota) write:
Upending contemporary media discourses of populism as a stain on liberal democracy, Bo Kyeong Seo's article, "Populist Becoming: The Red Shirt Movement and Political Affliction in Thailand," provides an incisive account of the more ambivalent relationship between populism and democracy articulated within the Red Shirt movement in Thailand. Instead of taking the people as a given, monolithic category constituted by a faceless crowd, Seo grounds her ethnography in a "microhistory" that reminds us of the chasm between political rhetoric and lived reality by showing us in plush style how political subjectivities are not just determined by populist orders but also constituted within them. Seo compellingly links a singular life with the shifting contours of a political milieu, illuminating how ways of being are forged and lived out in the spacetime of mass mobilization. While the government and bureaucratic elite continuously attempt to de-humanize the Red Shirts, Seo shows that everyday routines, such as preparing or distributing food, become an affective political action of being with people and caring for others as fellow humans. Such ordinary actions, Seo demonstrates, materialize people's political-democratic demands on the ground.
At a time of growing political discontent in the midst of a global health crisis and mass movement for racial justice, one of the strongest points of Seo's article lies in how her ethnography of a "singularity" shows forms of solidarity, mutuality, and care that emerge to enact a radical vision of being-in-relation or togetherness. Ultimately, Seo presents us with ethnography that manifests care through its narration, as it opens space for populism to emerge from everyday generosity and struggle.

Decameron Relived is a series of ten fictional stories in the new Editors'' Forum section Fictions on the SCA website, Fieldsights. Inspired by Giovanni Boccaccio's classic set during the outbreak of the Black Death, ten anthropologists have penned fictional stories to offer "entertainment and solace, but also to provoke a different kind of existential reflection" during the current pandemic, writes series editor Iza Kavedzija.
