Anthrohistory [Texte imprimé] : unsettling knowledge, questioning discipline /

de Murphy, Edward. (edt.) ; Cohen, David William (edt.) ; Bhimull, Chandra D.. (edt.)
Collation: 1 vol. (353 p.) : ill. en noir et en coul., couv. ill. en coul. ; 23 cm.Édition: Ann Arbor (Michigan) : University of Michigan Press, cop. 2011.ISBN: 9780472071357 (rel); 0472071351 (rel); 9780472051359 (br); 0472051350 (br).Contenu: Stretching back to the 1950s, interdisciplinary work between anthropology and history has taken diverse expressions. Yet it has developed with more coherence since the 1980s, largely in response to the declining promise of global modernity and the rise of poststructuralism and deconstructionism. Through a critical and contemporary engagement with this wave of scholarship, this volume challenges readers to think of work at the crossroads of anthropology and history as transdisciplinary and anthrohistorical, moving beyond a partial integration of the disciplines as it critically evaluates their assumptions and trajectories. This approach permits Anthrohistory: Unsettling Knowledge, Questioning Discipline to present a broader perspective that unsettles the constraints of existing academic practice. The volume does not offer a blueprint for fulfilling this goal, but rather a variety of positions taken by anthrohistorians who work in diverse contexts. Adopting an innovative and accessible style, Anthrohistory opens a provocative window into broader questions of interdisciplinarity, representation, epistemology, methodology, and social commitmentA prefatory piece / Chandra D.
