Long abstract:

This panel brings together anthropologists and geographers to discuss varied approaches to global supply chains that foreground knowledge as a productive focus for research. Variously tracing the flow of knowledge historically, spatially, and socially, the papers in this panel reveal unexpected consequences and opportunities as well as powerful asymmetries. They show the potency of applying geographical and anthropological scholarship to diverse supply chains and ask how academics can understand, interrogate, and engage with them. This panel therefore engages theoretically with applied approaches in addition to engaged and activist research.
