SA-152 Special issues on the anthropology of politics

COURSE INFORMATION

The aim of the course is to discuss the anthropological experience on the study of alternative politics as they evolve in the context of social movements both on protest and on prefigurative level. Early on, anthropologists focused on social groups outside or in the margins of Western modernity, shedding light on alternative ways in which those social groups perceived social relations and also political structures and governance. In this light, the course will attempt to highlight how the dominant narratives and values ​​of our time are challenged by communities that act through social protests and uprisings or through prefigurative action such as the production, management and sharing of common resources. During the course we will have an overview of the main theoretical approaches to collective action and social movements and we will refer to different types of such collectivities using examples of case studies of protest as well as of production, management and sharing of natural, cultural and digital resources and of social and solidarity economy endeavours both in rural as well as in semi-urban and urban environments. In doing so, we will be using anthropological analytical tools such as gift, exchange, community, moral economy. In addition, we will discuss feminist, engaged and militant ethnography and its significance in the study of social movements.
