Social anthropologists explore how and why social boundaries are created, manipulated, redefined, and crossed in contemporary Ethiopia, characterizing features and dynamics of both inter-group and intra-group boundaries. Their themes are alteration and crossing of boundaries, status changes and interdependencies across intra-ethnic divides, and differential perception of social boundaries. Their topics include the gated communities of inner-city Addis Ababa, the redemption of slave descendants among the Ganta in the Gamo highlands, narrating female identities and change in Maale, boundaries and bridges between life and death among the Konso, and the Rastafari return to a fictive Ethiopia.
