Open Anthropology Project
Open Anthropology is about opening knowledge production to reciprocal and collaborative engagements between academics and broader publics, while trying to put that into practice online. It is about building on ideas and examples of ways of speaking about the human condition that look critically at dominant discourses and that challenge the status quo of global capitalism. The project is therefore oriented toward contributing to non-state, non-market, knowledges and participating in a public practice that suits the project. Open Anthropology is also an invitation to critically reexamine the institutionalization of knowledge, looking for ways to reintegrate anthropology with other knowledge systems, and other disciplines, while criticizing the "disciplining" of the social sciences. This Open Anthropology Project is explicitly about decolonizing knowledge, which is combined with a pronounced anti-imperialist orientation.
