"It seems that I am not alone in my alone-ness - working alone with people who don't understand us appears, at least for some, to be part of the identity of an anthropologist. Perhaps there is a book in these experiences...
"After spending 13 years in academia acquiring my credentials as an anthropologist I joined the Canadian federal government in 1987. To put it mildly, it was a shock to the system and to a certain extent remains so. That said; I have found…"
"Charles, are you quite sure that aero engines have nothing to do with anthropology? I see a field site whose natives' lives are largely focused on a class of artifacts that are veritable embodiments of power and excitement. There may also be…"
"Hi Charles, I am safely tucked up in an anthropolgoy department at present, but this was not always the case. I flirted with HR in particular at a large engineering firm, in fact a world leader in filtration techniques. I survived, albeit my…"
"charles are you familiar with Culture Organization and Management at the VU UNiversity A'dam? Dr Sytze Kingma and Dr Kees Boersma work with an anthropological view on management and technology. if you like i can put you in touch with each…"
I was probably being delphic. Apologies. There is no connection between the work I do in this university and Aero Engines. But the people who are setting up the REF system here know so little about Anthropology that…"
Am I alone? I am indeed alone, as the single anthropologist in a University that specializes in management and technology. This leads of course to a sort of academic isolation and - with the best will in the world - to a corporate misunderstanding of what I do. For example, I have been assigned to the REF group that specializes in aero engines - an area that probably should be rich with anthropologists but (as far as I know) is not at the moment. I certainly have done no work in that…See More
The purpose of this group is to have a peg in the OAC for people to share what they can do, or would suggest can be done to carry on the usefulness of having 5000 anthropologists linked (however protractedly). Essentially Occupy it in the sense of bringing more life and meaning to a space.See More
I'm not usually prone to citing Wikipedia, but their info on the subject is pretty good: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_propaganda
All the references cited can be used. A good and easy to read book on the subject that's not…"
I'm unfamiliar with the Soviet propaganda to which you keep referring. Also, to which left-leaning comments on Avatar are you referring. Can you provide some explanation, along with citation if possible?
For what it's worth,…"
""Also, it might well be that the discourses that I am producing are “ready made” by others; but it hardly seems like a revelation to me. After all, a person has to be understood within the social contexts in which he or she is…"
What you have asserted seems as freighted with your own ideological slant as mine. Perhaps your experience in the military has predisposed you to a certain set of circumstances that involved a real threat of violence and/or confrontation. Do…"
Great points. I didn't see it until you talked about the movie in a class with the top grossing films, and the escapism of it. I have to admit that I avoided watching the film at first, because I thought it was going to be more of an…"
I'll have to go look at network theory, and the psychological operator stuff resonates with things that I've been thinking for a long time (though I've used terms like palimpsest).
At any rate, the question you pose,…"
charles are you familiar with Culture Organization and Management at the VU UNiversity A'dam? Dr Sytze Kingma and Dr Kees Boersma work with an anthropological view on management and technology. if you like i can put you in touch with each other - or just check their publications perhaps? best, francoise companjen
