decolonizing anthropology

Decolonizing anthropology is a group committed to interrogating and critiquing anthropology. It is a forum that begins with colonialism(s) as a given and opens up the possibilities for a non-colonial anthropology.

Layla AbdelRahim commented on Philip Carl SALZMAN's group Theory in Anthropology
"Do you have that many "minority" (how do we feel about being called that when we are the majority in the world - just like the Russian revolution with the inversion of Mensheviks and Bolsheviks) voices to debate with? Or is there a trend I…"

"Hi Josh, that's exactly what I'm talking about! Thanks for bring up Vine Deloria!!! M Izabel and the others, the problem with "choice" and "agency" is that it is used simplistically to deny the fact that when a guy…"

Layla AbdelRahim commented on Philip Carl SALZMAN's group Theory in Anthropology
"M Izabel, I, actually, do respond to your concerns in my earlier posts. So it is not fair to simplify what I am saying here. But to clarify, that is why I am inviting to undo the power structures of domestication that legitimise some voices and…"

Layla AbdelRahim commented on Philip Carl SALZMAN's group Theory in Anthropology
"John, the biggest problem to changing the system of oppression is that the voices that are legitimated (i.e. enjoy the power of symbolic and material capital value) are domesticated by the hand that feeds and hence see the situation as, although…"

Layla AbdelRahim commented on Philip Carl SALZMAN's group Theory in Anthropology
"PS. @Michael, your understanding of field-work differs from mine, but actually, for many years I also have worked as an anthropologist in the "field", so you are not completely to the point in your assumption that I refuse to engage with…"

Layla AbdelRahim commented on Philip Carl SALZMAN's group Theory in Anthropology
"@Michael, I agree with a large part of what you are saying: the need to understand and contextualise, the participation of Brahmins in the local culture of stratification and marginalisation, the Sudanese unjust governments, even the participation…"

Layla AbdelRahim commented on Philip Carl SALZMAN's group Theory in Anthropology
"Michael, I see that you have checked out my background. People rarely do that and jump to quick assumptions and superficial arguments. This discussion promises to be more meaningful. I agree with you that we differ in the approach, but if you look…"

Layla AbdelRahim commented on Philip Carl SALZMAN's group Theory in Anthropology
"Michael, have you tried to understand from the perspective of San/Bushmen why scholars from their milieu "literally do not exist"? You see, the skin colour and gender here will play a vital role in the kind of explanations, justifications,…"

Layla AbdelRahim commented on Philip Carl SALZMAN's group Theory in Anthropology
"Piers, the problem is that most people have been domesticated deeply enough to accept the current hierarchy in the production of knowledge as normal and invisible. And whenever someone points out to this persistent structure, her observations are…"

Layla AbdelRahim commented on Philip Carl SALZMAN's group Theory in Anthropology
"@ Izabel: Thank you for your response. Much appreciated. With regards to the critical mass - it exists out there, if only those who want to "study" a place listened to the knowledge out there. @ Jacob: I don't understand why you want…"

Layla AbdelRahim commented on Philip Carl SALZMAN's group Theory in Anthropology
"I wonder if anyone has noticed the persistent trend of Orientalism in these debates: How to understand China through the lens of white men? This comment is not meant to point fingers or to elicit justifications. I simply find these forums extremely…"

Layla AbdelRahim commented on Isabel Cardana's group human and non-human animals
"Privet Nicolas, I didn't mean you personally with the bla bla bla. I meant the 90% of the scientific production, including the essay that we are discussing is bla bla bla. I actually checked out your dissertation on wolves in Kirghizia and…"

Layla AbdelRahim commented on Isabel Cardana's group human and non-human animals
"Paul, please, don't give up trying to liberate yourself from the bonds of domestication and white maleness (gentle smile). Obviously, it is not true that all domestication and enslavement was started by white males. In fact, white males north…"

Layla AbdelRahim commented on Isabel Cardana's group human and non-human animals
"Nicolas, don't you see that there is a stronger correlation between the race and the gender of the scientists and of the lay people who prefer to describe the parasitic relationship of domesticating humans as "mutual" than between the…"

Layla AbdelRahim commented on Isabel Cardana's group human and non-human animals
"PS. and neither does Harraway, by the way. Again, I link all these aspects in my genesis piece - the machines, identity, violence, speciesism, racism et al."
