Recent years in anthropology have seen a noticeable trend, moving from
debates about theory to a concern with method. So while some generations
ago we would tend to identify ourselves as anthropologists with reference to
particular theoretical paradigms—for example, Marxism, (post-)structuralism,
cognitivism, cultural materialism, interpretivism—these days our tendency
is to align ourselves, often eclectically, with proposals conceived as methodological:
entanglements, assemblages, ontologies, technologies of description,
epistemic partnerships, problematizations, collaborative anthropology, the art of
noticing, and so on.
