Abstract in another language

Authors in the second segment of the series “Blowing up the ‘World’ of Anthropologies: Speaking from Experience” (first part here) reflect primarily on what it means to do anthropology outside of the United States. How does the centrism of the English language, of Euro-American coloniality, and of the United States as the universal audience impact anthropological knowledge production elsewhere? How can we think of anthropology otherwise, particularly in relation to promoting autochthonous thinking, to accessing research behind paywalls, and to decolonizing peer-review processes?

Drawing from the personal experiences of anthropologists based in Brazil, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Russia, and South Africa, the contributions in this second part of our series address some of these questions. They provide not only firsthand accounts of the global (and local) power imbalances within our discipline but also manifestos on how to “world” anthropology, picking up the pieces of systems that must be rethought and reworked.
