Elizabeth A. Povinelli (1962) is Franz Boas Professor of Anthropology at Columbia University where she has also been director of the Institute for Research on Women and Gender and co-director of the Centre for the Study of Law and Culture. Informed by settler colonial theory, pragmatism and critical theory, Povinelli's writing has focused on developing a critical theory of late liberalism that would support an anthropology of the otherwise. She is the author of books and essays as well as former editor of the academic journal Public Culture. She received her Ph.D. in Anthropology from Yale University in 1991.

Povinelli is one of the founding members of the Karrabing Film Collective.
