Anthropology Beyond Culture

3.40  ·  Rating details ·  5 ratings  ·  1 review
Culture is a vexed concept within anthropology. From their earliest studies, anthropologists have often noted the emotional attachment of people to their customs, even in cases where this loyalty can make for problems. Do anthropologists now suffer the same kind of disability with respect to their continuing emotional attachment to the concept of culture?

I have encountered the culture debate through the Writing Culture tradition. Later I was excitedly reading Ferguson/Gupta pieces on fieldwork, ethnography through which culture debate continued. Later there are fantastic pieces at Cultural Anthropology Journal. ie Michael Fischer's review of history of culture debates in anthropology. And here I have a great difficulty to locate where this books stands. What it contributes to those debetes... and unfortunately I find not much...
