O Anthropology, Where Art Thou?: An auto-ethnography of proposals
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts, Department of Cultural Anthropology and Ethnology.
2016 (English)In: The anthropologist as writer: Genres and contexts in the 21st century / [ed] Helena Wulff, New York, Oxford: Berghahn Books, 2016, 46-59 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In this paper I revisit the so-called Malinowskian legacy in the light of my efforts to raise funds for my own anthropological endeavors. Today’s almost habitual dismissal of this legacy as parochial risks missing the fact that the anthropology of Bronislaw Malinowski’s days was not simply a colonialist enterprise working under faulty premises. Even if epistemologically ethnocentric, Malinowski and those following his lead paved the way for an engaged, open-minded, reflexive, and indeed global anthropology. I will sketch some possibilities and potentials for ethnographic writing, but more, forces that tend to corrode the anthropological mind, a kind of control and restriction of the anthropological and academic freedom that I guess Malinowski never had to deal with in his life. As one of those ancestors who still interfere with our daily anthropological lives, I suspect him to be somehow troubled with today’s predicament.
