Anthropologists, Indigenous Scholars and the Research Endeavour : Seeking Bridges Towards Mutual Respect, Hardback Book

Anthropologists, Indigenous Scholars and the Research Endeavour : Seeking Bridges Towards Mutual Respect Hardback

Edited by Joy Hendry, Laara Fitznor

Part of the Routledge Studies in Anthropology series

Description

This collection offers the fruits of a stimulating workshop that sought to bridge the fraught relationship which sometimes continues between anthropologists and indigenous/native/aboriginal scholars, despite areas of overlapping interest.

Participants from around the world share their views and opinions on subjects ranging from ideas for reconciliation, the question of what might constitute a universal "science," indigenous heritage, postcolonial museology, the boundaries of the term "indigeneity," different senses as ways of knowing, and the very issue of writing as a method of dissemination that divides and excludes readers from different backgrounds.

This book represents a landmark step in the process of replacing bridges with more equal patterns of intercultural cooperation and communication.
