Futuros Disputados (2016)

VI congresso da Associação Portuguesa de Antropologia (APA) – Chamada para comunicações

*  *  *

Published on Wednesday, November 18, 2015 by João Fernandes

Summary

The upcoming conference of the Portuguese Anthropological Association continues the debate about the worlds we inhabit, create and differentiate. Knowledge about its pluralities has guided the discipline for over one hundred years, in ever new and unexpected scenarios. Anthropology faces new challenges in the contemporary context of an anthropocene (or in its most radical version, capitolocene) and its uncertain responsibilities on the collective fate of humans and nonhumans. While governments and political actors favor macroscopic knowledge supported on statistics and normative analytical frameworks, we respond with what we learn in ethnography and anthropology: a knowledge closer to the lived experience and one that pays attention to the voices, bodies, desires, subjectivities, communities, identities, anxieties about the past, present and near future, unsatisfied by large-scope ideological narratives.

Theme

The upcoming conference of the Portuguese Anthropological Association continues the debate about the worlds we inhabit, create and differentiate. Knowledge about its pluralities has guided the discipline for over one hundred years, in ever new and unexpected scenarios. Anthropology faces new challenges in the contemporary context of an anthropocene (or in its most radical version, capitolocene) and its uncertain responsibilities on the collective fate of humans and nonhumans. While governments and political actors favor macroscopic knowledge supported on statistics and normative analytical frameworks, we respond with what we learn in ethnography and anthropology: a knowledge closer to the lived experience and one that pays attention to the voices, bodies, desires, subjectivities, communities, identities, anxieties about the past, present and near future, unsatisfied by large-scope ideological narratives. We ask everybody — practicing anthropologists, academics, students and other engaged individuals — for a contribution on this broad debate and reflection about the contemporary world and its possible futures.
