Accepted Paper:

Is an egalitarian global anthropology possible? The problem of hegemony and flows  
Gustavo Lins Ribeiro (University of Brasilia)

Paper long abstract:

The metanarratives of the world anthropologies project seem to promise a world of equality among anthropologists. Although this trend has been criticized before, we need to deal with the problems that arise from metaphors such as center/periphery, flows, and from the use of the notion of hegemony. This paper will situate itself in the tricky encounter of pragmatism and utopia, necessary forces in any kind of politics.
