James Clifford: l'antropologia dei margini

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] "About Men. Contemporaneous Anthropological Perspectives" presents the contribution that eight of the most significant contemporary anthropologists have prepared as part of the anthropological reflection. Among them, James Clifford, anthropologist "eccentric", of which the essay discusses the contribution to contemporary anthropological debate and the crisis of ethnographic representation. The essay also points out how similar issues and sensitivity to those of Clifford and, more generally, the so-called postmodern anthropology, are traceable, long before, in the humanities, in the reflection semiotics Lotmanian, with text notions , border dialogue and a shiny rethinking of the translation process.
