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
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.
