"Response-ability is about both absence and presence, killing and nurturing, living and dying—and remembering of who lives and who dies and how in the string figures of natural cultural history."
-- Donna Haraway
Anthropology’s signature method of participant observation affords often quite intense and intimate relations to people and communities, many caught painfully in global structures of power, inequality, violence, struggle, and hope. Anthropologists work constantly across scale, across the apparent boundaries of self and other, and on and through the broken ground of scholarly and human responsibility. Join us for a conversation as Cultural Anthropology professors Christine Folch, Anne-Maria Makhulu, and Ralph Litzinger, and graduate students, Naledi Yaziyo, Joe Hiller, and Hannah Borenstein talk about their fieldwork and the activism it has led them to.
Part of the Cultural Anthropology department’s alt.ac (alternative academic) series on how the academy connects to the “real world”.
