About This Book

Anthropology is a flourishing discipline in Southeast Asia. This book renders visible the development of national traditions and transnational practices of anthropology across the region. Anthropology's self-criticism of the colonial, postcolonial and neo-colonial conditions of its own production remains relevant for SE Asia. There has been a vigorous debate and a wide range of suggestions on what might be done to de-center the Euro-, andro-, hetero- and other centrisms of the discipline from an emerging world anthropologies perspective. But actually transforming anthropology requires practice beyond mere critique. The chapters in this volume focus on practices and paradigms of anthropologists working from and within SE Asia.
