Indigenous Studies and Engaged Anthropology: Opening a Dialogue
15-17 September 2009
For symposium details, including registration, costs and accommodation and a preliminary programme please see links on left.
During the past decades, two fields have been developing that have the potential to radically alter socio-cultural anthropology: indigenous studies and engaged anthropology. While integration of the two fields would seem beneficial, up until now, anthropologists have largely failed to incorporate indigenous studies, while indigenous scholars are often hostile to anthropologists. We plan a three day meeting with the aim of fostering an exchange between anthropologists and indigenous scholars about the role and impact of different approaches to research of and by indigenous peoples.
Hosted by Durham University's Anthropology in Development Research Group
