    Survival in war-torn Uganda2006Ingår i: Anthropology Today, ISSN 0268-540X, E-ISSN 1467-8322, Vol. 22, nr 2, s. 12-15Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article describes some of the slippery but very real non-formal aspects of economic life and war in Acholiland, northern Uganda, and attempt, in the words of anthropologist Carolyn Nordstrom, ‘an ethnography of the shadows’ – that is, a description of those frontier realities of power, non-formal economic exchanges and everyday survival. Today’s war in northern Uganda, although fought locally, is international and even global in character. Worldwide flows of imagery, weaponry and humanitarian aid become entangled with local socio-political realities. In narrating a young man’s story of survival, the article shows how internally displaced people in the war zone understand and explain the fact that the international community has become increasingly and inescapably entangled with the politics and practices of this war.

    Magical formulae for market futures: Tales from the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos2016Ingår i: Anthropology Today, ISSN 0268-540X, E-ISSN 1467-8322, Vol. 32, nr 6, s. 18-21Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Markets are often portrayed as being organized by way of rationalized knowledge, objective reasoning, and the fluctuations of demand and supply. In parallel, and often mixed with this modality of knowledge, magical beliefs and practices are prevalent. Business leaders, management consultants, and financial advisors are often savvy in the art of creatively blending the ‘objective facts’ of markets with magical formulae, rites, and imaginaries of the future. This article looks at the World Economic Forum's yearly Davos meeting as a large-scale ritual that engages senior executives of global corporations, top-level politicians, and civil society leaders to contribute to the overall aim of ‘improving the world’. The Davos gathering has become a vital part of the business calendar, just as much for the intensity of its networking as for the declarations of action from the speakers’ podiums. The presentations and performances in Davos work as ‘technologies of enchantment’ in Gell's (1992) sense, instilling a sense of agency onto participants. The ritual also contributes towards securing the acquiescence of individuals and organizations in a transnational network of politico-economic intentionalities. By invoking global and regional challenges and risks, discussing possible scenarios and solutions, presenters invoke a sense of urgency and contribute to the articulation of global ‘problems’ and ‘solutions’. It is proposed that the magic of Davos resides to a large extent in the ritualized form of interaction and the technologies of enchantment through which it is set up. © RAI 2016

    Climate change and energy use: The role for anthropological research2005Ingår i: Anthropology Today, ISSN 0268-540X, E-ISSN 1467-8322, Vol. Vol. 21, no 3, nr JuneArtikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The expression 'global climate change' no longer designates merely a discourse on possible future risks; today it us used as a shorthand for specific ongoing events that are having a serious impact on the lives of people around the world. In the light of this change and consequent efforts to limit carbon dioxide emissions, contributions from social scientists are increasingly in demand within the study of energy use. My concern here is not whether intervention is a proper role for anthropologists, but rather how we may position ourselves within energy- and climate-related research.

    AFTER POLITICAL ECOLOGY2018Ingår i: Anthropology Today, ISSN 0268-540X, E-ISSN 1467-8322, Vol. 34, nr 2, s. 22-24Artikel, forskningsöversikt (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This book review article probes present anthropological engagement with the environment through the prism of political ecology, placing political ecology in conversation with newer work in environmnetal anthropology. In situating this conversation, the reviewer draws on four recent anthropological monographs that, in one way or another, deal with aspects of nature'. The four monographs are Tania Murray Li's (2014) Land's end: Capitalist relations on an indigenous frontier; Marianne Elisabeth Lien's (2015) Becoming salmon: Aquaculture and the domestication of fish; Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing's (2015) The mushroom at the end of the world: On the possibility of life in capitalist ruin; and, lastly, Marisol de la Cadena's (2015) Earth beings: Ecologies of practice across Andean worlds. As I suggest, political ecology requires a radical remake, perhaps a political ecology 2.0, which brings in nature in a new way and makes the category of the political more inclusive.

    Writing development2013Ingår i: Anthropology Today, ISSN 0268-540X, E-ISSN 1467-8322, Vol. 29, nr 2, s. 4-7Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Development professionals spend a lot of time writing and the aid industry has a vast production of texts. The author argues here that anthropology of development needs to look anew at how these texts are being produced, circulated and the purposes they serve. I have briefly identified six features of development writing: 1. Institutional ownership, 2. multiple authorship, 3. impersonal style, 4. terminology, 5. Communicable simplifications and 6. temporality. The more general point is to call for a more sophisticated engagement with development texts. There might be more going on in these documents than immediately meets the eye. More than anything else, these texts grant legitimacy and presence to the actors involved in development. Writing development is more about the production process, the language and what it ultimately bring in terms of aid flows, rather than the substance of the text itself.

    Intervention or inspiration?: Kolam and fieldwork ethics in the Tamil diaspora2012Ingår i: Anthropology Today, ISSN 0268-540X, E-ISSN 1467-8322, Vol. 28, nr 6, s. 3-6Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores a classic dilemma concerning the extent to which anthropologist fieldworkers may influence their fieldwork hosts. This dilemma arose in the course of the author’s research on kolam drawing practices among diaspora Tamils in the UK. Kolam constitute a popular visual practice among Tamils in India and Sri Lanka, but less so in the diaspora. However, the researcher’s interest in kolam practice began to awaken an interest on the part of diaspora Tamils in the UK and affect the very practices researched. Does this constitute an intervention or might it be considered an appropriate form of inspiration? The article makes a contribution to the literature on ethics and on diasporic communities, whose members, although reticent to perpetuate practices that might upset their host society, may nevertheless defer to researchers with specialist knowledge of their homeland. © RAI 2012.
