Long Abstract

As our discipline makes itself increasingly relevant in contemporary world, this Roundtable will open some important questions about the shifting roles of ethnography, but also different topics that are of concern for anthropologists today. What is the future of anthropology? How have new concepts (like the "Anthropocene") or some old ones (like "globalization") influenced contemporary research topics? Is anthropology closer to humanities or to social sciences (the question especially interesting for former Eastern Europe)? Drawing on their own research experience, as well as the research traditions they come from, the participants of the Roundtable (Kirsten Hastrup, Adam Kuper, Maja Petrović-Šteger and João Pina-Cabral) will present summaries of the changing perspectives of social anthropology, as well as offer their views about new horizons for understanding anthropology's future predicaments.
