May 2014 marks the publication of Cultural Anthropology's second open-access issue, and with it, the journal turns its attention directly to the challenges and opportunities of open-access publishing. A special section gathers together essays by an array of open-access advocates and practitioners-from librarians and publishers, to anthropologists studying and working in the volatile realm of contemporary scholarly communication. Five original articles also appear in the May issue, including Charles Briggs on Freud and the work of mourning, Joseph Dumit on teaching with Deleuze and Haraway, Damien Droney on Ghanaian scientists' cynical views of science in Africa, Kristina Jacobsen-Bia on race, sound, and belonging in the Navajo Nation, and Tania Ahmad on indignation and party politics in Karachi.
