To value or re-evaluate? On the anthropological perspective of a crisis

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftKommentar/debatForskningpeer review

Abstract

In his ode to New York City under lockdown, David Remnick was accurate in noting that ‘life now depends on our withdrawal from life’ (2020: 5). But this ethos presents an acute challenge to anthropology since it is proximity to (rather than withdrawal from) the data, subject and field that epitomises the value of anthropological knowledge.
