Southern anthropological solidarities: Latin American agenda


Location: Poznań, Poland
Date: 30 Aug 13:45 - 15:30


Room 3.45

Latin American anthropology has been recognized in themes that present particularities as an articulated territorial and political system. In this sense, binding events, such as the Mercosur Anthropology Meetings (RAM) or the National Anthropology Congresses that attract colleagues from the region, have allowed them to create their own research lines. We can even identify a South-South anthropology that is making its way, as is the Uruguayan case. To these links has been added the institutional map of the Associations of Anthropology that, under the umbrella of the Latin American Association of Anthropology (ALA), allows to think in a critical anthropology and always contextualized in current social scenarios, strengthening academic solidarity and with the interacting societies. It is a specific dynamic of Latin America, in appropriate times and spaces, that transits conflicts and singularities that are reflected in the anthropological academic production. We believe that it is essential to approach these realities of our anthropological community that often appears distant for the anthropologies of other parts of the planet, a vision without which the theoretical, methodological and practical baggage of our discipline would be incomplete.

Globalisation is the result of the unipolar world that came as the consequence of the end of communism and the attendant discontinuation of the Non-Aligned association of nations of the South. Globalisation is presented as the homogenisation of social processes: economic, cultural and political, everywhere on the planet. It is supposed to belong to no particular group but in reality globalisation ... More

This presentation aims to share reflections on the forms of solidarity identified in the field work experienced in the context of doctoral thesis. Being an anthropologist from Uruguay at the end of 2015, I began the field work in Chile for the study of the socio-environmental conflict “No-Alto Maipo”. The access to the field had particular characteristics, after trying to connect, steadily, wi ... More
