Turner is all over the globe as he addresses issues of cultural performance, carnival, film, theatre, and "performing ethnography" to break new ground in anthropological thinking about event, spectacle, and audience. One of his last writings, "Body, Brain, and Culture" links cerebral neurology and anthropology studies in a fascinating interface.
