General discussion

讨论

(What connections can anthropology make that partly overcome distances of language, local traditions, and political economies?  How can we teach ourselves and our anthropology students to see, know, and write at multiple scales? What kind of curiosity about worlds should we cultivate and satisfy with ethnographic writing?  Perhaps the diverse projects presented at this conference hold some promising responses to questions like these.  This discussion can be devoted to drawing out the potential for a future anthropology from this meeting’s experimental work. 人类学如何克服复数的语言、地方传统、政治经济学的相异而建立联系?我们如何教自己以及人类学学生在多重尺度之下看、听、了解、写作?身处复数的世界,我们应当培养怎样的好奇心、并从民族志写作中得到满足?各位与会者报告的研究主题或多或少对上述问题做出了一些积极的回应。也许最后的讨论可以从我们这个实验性会议中为人类学的将来提出一些值得探索的方向。)
