Anthropology in Public Sphere: Solidarity, Peace and Development


Location: Poznań, Poland
Date: from 28 Aug 11:00 to 29 Aug 12:45


Room 2.21

"Anthropology in Public Sphere: Solidarity, Peace and Development” is based on significant events of present era demonstrate that anthropology has established a new grip in the public sphere—one can make the most of novel forms of communication to reach far beyond the academic activities to distribute knowledge widely and freely. This focuses on different contemporary areas of vigorous anthropological research in future that also addressed some of the natural life most extreme problems and issues. Anthropology believes in a model of development that is more people centric. One that focuses on issues such as environment, poverty, food security, gender, social justice, inclusive growth etc. Such a model, we believe, needs to take culture as an important component of the idea of sustainable development with world solidarity and peace. Anthropology as a discipline enable the cultivation of certain modes of thinking which will prepare individuals and societies to face these three urgent challenges of the twenty first century: solidarity, peace and development. As a discipline, Anthropology can lend a powerful voice to non–hegemonic and marginalized cultural perspectives on Solidarity, Peace and Development, and thereby lead to more fruitful conversations on the topic.

Anthropology perceived as cultural critique has a long tradition. Its critical potential was revealed in, for example, the 1960s: on the one hand, it was an innovative formula of the American Indian Chicago Conference from 1961 developed by Sol Tax, on the other hand, the teach-ins idea “invented” by Marshall Sahlins. In 2016 in Poznań an Extraordinary Congress of Anthropologists was held und ... More
