In order to depict anthropological moorings, we invite scholars and academicians working in the themes and perspectives of anthropological reflections of crisis and imagination to contribute their experiences with the learned colleagues of EASA.
Our panel aims to draw an analogy of the issues and perspectives which are related to crisis and imagination. These can be depicted by understanding anthropologist's reflections and ideas, which emerge from their field view. This will facilitate us to get an empirical perceptive of the situation. Further this information would percolate up to facilitate our insights into a broader theoretical framework. Crises may be of many kinds and the way we (anthropologists) perceive them is different from the other human/biological sciences. Hence, field view is very important to address crisis and which will make us an imaginatory aspect of the situations. Here, further, diffusionary tendencies of the ideas would help us to depict imaginations of the people experienced and who deliver their solutions as well. Thus, anthropological reflections on the crisis situation and imagination would bring forth the idea of a field view to the wider audience of the discipline.
