The articles in this theme section are based on
papers presented at a three-session workshop
on World Anthropologies at the 2008 Biennial
Conference of the European Association of Social
Anthropologists in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Drawing on analyses of the position of anthropological
disciplinary practices in Poland,
Spain, Hungary, and the US, as well as their
global reception, these articles ask important
and timely questions about where anthropologists
conduct their research, what professional
and academic societies they join, what types of
relationships they should forge with scholars
who live in the country or nation in which they
conduct fieldwork, and how they should engage
with other disciplines beyond anthropology. As
these articles demonstrate, practices of collaboration
are enmeshed in politically, socially, and
geographically grounded histories. Although at
some level this may not be a surprise to readers,
specific issues remain well worth examining
further and discussing within the profession.
