En/redar-se: Networking in/with/for World Anthropologies

The purpose of the present web page is to support the formation of a
self-organizing world anthropologies network.

Conceived as a process we hope that the network will constitute a dialogic
space for discussing 'anthropology' in its relation to a multiplicity of
world-making processes and events. We hope that the network will
contribute to the development of a plural landscape of world
anthropologies that is both less shaped by metropolitan hegemonies and
more open to the heteroglossic potential of unfolding globalization

We define this as en/redar-se. Modified from the Spanish "to
self-entangle," we suggest that this practice should constitute the
underpinning philosophy/activity of the network: the constant, planetary
interlocking of locally significant notions aimed at producing shared, yet
differentiated, anthropological practices.

Eventually, the network should move towards planetary modes of inquiry
while enabling plural, place-centered political/theoretical visions and
concerns and without imposing uniform agendas or styles.

Necessarily multilingual, and organized and effected virtually as well as
through concrete (and hopefully intentionally unorthodox) events, the
network will also aim at producing alternative research and funding
practices, emphasizing collective research agendas and authorship, while
remaining sensitive to place-based particularities.
