Making Sense: The Fields in which We Work

  • Michel-Rolph Trouillot


Anthropology could not have simply landed where it did had the deployment of the culture concept not influenced its disciplinary path. To ask where anthropology is—or should be—going today is to ask where anthropology is coming from and to assess critically the heritage that it must claim. But it is also to ask about changes in the world around us, inside and outside of academe, and how these changes should affect our use of that heritage, and what is best left behind as obsolete, redundant, or simply misleading in this new context of global transformations.
