What makes our projects “anthropological”?
What is that anthropological twist that we bring
and what does it add to any given empirical or
substantive field? These are the key questions
that the editors of Focaal asked me to consider;
intrinsically compelling, they hooked me into
adding my own contribution to this Forum
topic. The questions intrigue me because I see
myself both as a keen advocate of certain ways of
doing interdisciplinarity, and as deeply grounded
in the history, practice, and thinking of my own
discipline of anthropology. I start my reflection
from the interdisciplinary end, via the theme of
serendipity; somehow, these are linked.
