Engaged Anthropology : Views from Scandinavia Hardback
Edited by Tone Bringa, Synnove Bendixsen
Part of the Approaches to Social Inequality and Difference series
In this volume, leading public anthropologists examine paths towards public engagement and discuss their experiences with engaged anthropology in arenas such as the media, international organizations, courtrooms, and halls of government.
They discuss topics ranging from migration to cultural understanding, justice, development aid, ethnic conflict, war, and climate change.
Through these examples of hands-on experience, the book provides a unique account of challenges faced, opportunities taken, and lessons learned.
It illustrates the potential efficacy of an anthropology that engages with critical social and political issues.
