Topics in Theory and Practice of Anthropology (Half-Term): Indigenous Cosmopolitics: Perspectivism in the Anthropocene

ANT 522A/SPA 522/LAS 522

Info tab content
How can we understand and interact with other ways of thinking? What other ideas of a world emerge when animals, humans and plants are persons among whom relations are properly social? How can these new ideas lead to creative and engaged actions in the face of the Anthropocene? Indigenous Cosmopolitics reflects on these questions by taking the concept of cosmopolitics as background for the reading of ethnographies based on the socio-cosmological perspectives of western and beyond-western peoples, with emphasis on studies of Amazonian Indigenous peoples and their perspectivist ontologies.
