Bela Feldman-Bianco (University of Campinas)

Paper short abstract:

In this paper, based upon an examination of the main accomplishments played by the WCAA since its formation, I discuss the challenges of consolidating and promoting world anthropologies in the next decade.

Paper long abstract:

Since its foundation, the WCAA has played relevant political and organizational roles for the institutionalization of world anthropologies. Based on these accomplishments, I examine and discuss the challenges facing the WCCA commitments towards fostering greater inclusiveness and equity among different anthropological traditions, including issues related to the possibilities and limits of multilingualism. I further suggest the need of programmatic undertakings and transnational collaborations a to consolidate and promote equitable world anthropologies.
