Short abstract:

It is very difficult for anthropologists to understand Human Life without Enterprise and Market in the modern era.

Long abstract:

It is very difficult for anthropologists to understand society and culture without economy. At the mean time, it is also very difficult for anthropologists to understand Human Life without Enterprise and Market in the modern era. In order to have a better understanding on our life, society and culture, we should pay more attention to our economic activities, especially the activities of enterprise and market. However, enterprise and market are not the issue of economy, which need more explantion in the perspectives of social and cultural research. In this panel, welcome the papers from anthropology and other relevent disciplines. We are waiting for a communication and discussion of multi-discipline.
