Recasting anthropological knowledge : inspiration and social science( )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of original essays provides an innovative and multifaceted reflection on the impact and inspiration of the scholarship of eminent anthropologist Marilyn Strathern. A distinguished team of international contributors, all former students of Strathern, reflect on the impact of their relationship with their teacher and address the wider conceptual contribution of her work through their own writings. The essays provide an accessible entry into Strathern's scholarship for those new to her work and a rich source of material which mobilises and deploys her concepts, including new ethnographic examples and discussion of contemporary political issues, for those more familiar with her scholarship. The result is a collection that dissects, contextualises and reroutes concepts of relationality, inspiration and knowledge in novel and unpredictable ways. Recasting Anthropological Knowledge will prove invaluable to all students of anthropology and will be of interest to scholars across the social sciences"--
Technologies of procreation : kinship in the age of assisted conception by Jeanette Edwards( Book )

28 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Technologies of Procreation brings a fresh approach to the analysis of the social and cultural implications of assisted conception technologies. It explores how these techniques create the potential for a redefinition of relationships, because it is now possible to create life on behalf of another person. This second edition presents significant new material that enhances the original argument. By drawing on ethnographic studies, household interviews, and debates in government and among clinicians, the authors offer an insightful examination of the transformations of parenthood, procreation and kinship in the context of new reproductive technologies. Successfully bridging the gap between medical technology and cultural values, this book is a welcome addition to the growing field of medical anthropology
European kinship in the age of biotechnology( Book )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interest in the study of kinship, a key area of anthropological enquiry, has recently reemerged. Dubbed 'the new kinship', this interest was stimulated by the 'new genetics' and revived interest in kinship and family patterns. This volume investigates the impact of biotechnology on contemporary understandings of kinship, of family and 'belonging' in a variety of European settings and reveals similarities and differences in how kinship is conceived. What constitutes kinship for different publics? How significant are biogenetic links? What does family resemblance tell us? Why is genetically modi
Born and bred : idioms of kinship and new reproductive technologies in England by Jeanette Edwards( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born and Bred is an ethnography of Bacup in the north-west of England. At the heart of the cotton industry in the nineteenth century, this Lancashire town has undergone deep social and economic change during the twentieth, yet it remains a hive of social activity. The book focuses on the way in which the past continues to figure in people's talk about the place and about each other, but it questions the claim that such a preoccupation is simply due to nostalgia for better times. Narratives about the past, like narratives about the kind of place Bacup is, mobilize cultural understandings of kinship, which are also deployed when people talk about the implications of new reproductive technologies. Jeanette Edwards argues that kinship is resonant in the way in which residents of the town belong to pasts, places and persons. She challenges the idea that kinship is no longer an organizing principle in post-industrial Western society
Anthropology and science : epistemologies in practice( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What does it mean to know something - scientifically, anthropologically, socially? What is the relationship between different forms of knowledge and ways of knowing? How is knowledge mobilised in society and to what ends? Drawing on ethnographic examples from across the world, and from the virtual and global 'places' created by new information technologies, "Anthropology and Science" presents examples of living and dynamic epistemologies and practices, and of how scientific ways of knowing operate in the world. Authors address the nature of both scientific and experiential knowledge, and look at competing and alternative ideas about what it means to be human. The essays analyze the politics and ethics of positioning 'science', 'culture' or 'society' as authoritative. They explore how certain modes of knowing are made authoritative and command allegiance (or not), and look at scientific and other rationalities - whether these challenge or are compatible with science

Défis contemporains de la parenté by Joan Bestard( )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pourquoi la notion de parenté que l'on croyait aussi intangible qu'intemporelle est-elle aujourd'hui soumise aux plus profonds bouleversements? Quels changements ont affecté la parenté ces dernières décennies? Les auteurs, issus d'horizons géographiques et disciplinaires variés, confrontent positions et analyses autour de trois thématiques : les cadres et enjeux juridiques des nouvelles parentés, la parenté à l'âge des biotechnologies et des adoptions internationales, les changements de perception du corps et de la personne. Ce livre nous entraîne au cœur des controverses soulevées par les nouvelles techniques de procréation (familles mono- et homo-parentales, fécondation in vitro, dons de gamètes, etc.). Il témoigne de l'évolution profonde de la parenté, tant au niveau des savoirs et des techniques que des représentations et des valeurs communes. La filiation ne va plus de soi ... La diversité et la profondeur de l'étude, marquée par une approche anthropologique, rendent cet ouvrage incontournable pour la compréhension des nouveaux défis de la parenté, en pleine (r- )évolution

European kinship in the age of biotechnology( Book )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interest in the study of kinship, a key area of anthropological enquiry, has recently reemerged. Dubbed 'the new kinship', this interest was stimulated by the 'new genetics' and revived interest in kinship and family patterns. This volume investigates the impact of biotechnology on contemporary understandings of kinship, of family and 'belonging' in a variety of European settings and reveals similarities and differences in how kinship is conceived. What constitutes kinship for different publics? How significant are biogenetic links? What does family resemblance tell us? Why is genetically modified food an issue? Are 'genes' and 'blood' interchangeable? It has been argued that the recent prominence of genetic science and genetic technologies has resulted in a 'geneticization' of social life; the ethnographic examples presented here do show shifts occurring in notions of 'nature' and of what is 'natural'. But, they also illustrate the complexity of contemporary kinship thinking in Europe and the continued interconnectedness of biological and sociological understandings of relatedness and the relationship between nature and nurture
