Accepted Paper:

Shared anthropology: When anthropology meets critical public pedagogy  
Arjang Omrani (University Of Ghent) Tahereh Aboofazeli

Paper short abstract:

This presentation explores the common grounds between critical public anthropology and critical public pedagogy as critically conscious, engaged and animating practices envisioned in the framework of shared anthropology that asserts the co-authored nature of knowledge by "sharing-the-anthropology".

Paper long abstract:

In this presentation, the authors explore the common grounds between critical public anthropology and critical public pedagogy as critically conscious, engaged, and animating practices. Through intervention in the public domain, they are involved in the contested role of culture in power production, distribution, and regulation. These affinities have been envisioned in the framework of shared anthropology that asserts the co-authored nature of knowledge by "sharing-the-anthropology". A path toward decolonizing and democratizing knowledge through the use of multimodal narrative and art as a medium; not as “a research object or research aim” (Borgdorf 2013) and as a form to explore “knowing-in-practice” (Beck 2011) and strategy for mediating knowledge.

Through this framework the conceptual framework of the project, 'We Are Not Carpets' a work-in-progress in which the authors are currently involved, will be introduced. Aligning with the critical principles of shared anthropology, the project integrates a critical approach to problematize the subordinate condition of handmade carpet weavers within its production and distribution regime. As such we explore the connection between the ethico-political and epistemological framework established for shared anthropology and the conceptual framework envisioned for the project.
