Routes : travel and translation in the late twentieth century by James Clifford( Book )

26 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Travel, diaspora, border crossing, self-location, the making of homes away from home: these are transcultural predicaments for the late twentieth century. The map that might account for them, the history of an entangled modernity, emerges here as an unfinished series of paths and negotiations, leading in many directions while returning again and again to the struggles and arts of cultural encounter, the impossible, inescapable tasks of translation

El surgimiento de la antropología posmoderna by Clifford Geertz( Book )

12 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in Spanish and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hace unos años, por iniciativa de Clifford Geertz, la antropología volvió a trascender sus fronteras para buscar un intercambio con otros ámbitos de la actividad intelectual, no necesariamente científicos. Expansiones parecidas se habían manifestado pocas veces, al impulso de importantes giros e inflexiones en el pensamiento: con Malinowski, en la querella alrededor de Edipo, con Lévi-Strauss y el estructuralismo, acaso también con Margaret Mead. Hoy somos testigos de una circunstancia casi opuesta en la que una ciencia, hasta hace poco dotada de la seducción de lo exótico, se precipita en lo que ha dado en llamarse la condición posmoderna. Esta compilación documenta el surgimiento de una antropología cada vez más consciente de que los colapsos que anticipa la idea misma de posmodernidad involucran también su propia caída. No es sólo la antropología la que se encuentra ante la amenaza de un vacío interior. Habrá sin duda un arrastre en cadena, porque otros espacios del saber (el psicoanálisis, la crítica cultural, el feminismo) se habían acostumbrado a confiar en una ciencia a la que creían fuerte. Los textos polémicos que aquí se presentan se escalonan en una serie que comienza con el proyecto (premonitoriamente débil) de erigir una ciencia interpretativa; el tránsito a la antropología posmoderna parece inexorable. Se trata, para algunos, de los primeros pasos, hacia una honda transformación científica; para otros, en cambio, tenemos ante los ojos el testimonio de la muerte de una ciencia

Lisl Ponger : the vanishing middle class by Lisl Ponger( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lisl Ponger beschäftigt sich seit vielen Jahren mit der Konstruiertheit von (kultureller) Identität, den – oft stereotypen – Vorstellungen und Wahrnehmungen des „Anderen“ und damit verbundenen Fragen bildlicher Repräsentation. Ein bevorzugter Gegenstand ihrer künstlerischen Auseinandersetzung sind die Disziplinen der Ethnologie und Anthropologie, deren Methoden und Politiken in der Sammlungs- und Ausstellungspraxis ethnologischer Museen anschaulich werden.0Im Hauptraum der Secession realisiert Ponger ein lange gehegtes Vorhaben: das Museum für fremde und vertraute Kulturen, kurz MuKul. In diesem Entwurf für ein eigenes (ethnologisches) Museum kulminieren ihre künstlerischen Interessen. Wenngleich fiktiv, basiert die Inszenierung des Museums auf akribischen Recherchen und genauen Beobachtungen. Es ist fast verstörend detailgetreu an reale Völkerkundemuseen angelehnt, die heute zunehmend Namen wie Weltmuseum oder Museum der Kulturen u. Ä. tragen. Nicht nur weisen die Sammlungsobjekte Inventarnummer sowie Ankaufsort und -jahr auf, das Museum verfügt auch über Objektbeschriftungen, Saaltexte und Tafeln mit den Namen aller Mitarbeiter- Innen und LeihgeberInnen, und im Foyer befindet sich einer der aktuell populären Fotopoints, vor dem sich BesucherInnen in Szene setzen können.0Exhibition: Vereinigung bildender Künstlerinnen Wiener Secession, Vienna, Austria (13.2.-30.3.2014)
