Abstract:

Accessible to non-specialists and researchers interested in ethnography, this volume offers an introduction into the uses of anthropology for engaging contemporary social issues. The editors? essay surveys the development of anthropological research from its early exotic, non-Western focus to today?s debate over increasingly engaged approaches within a globalized society. The case studies utilize anthropology?s hallmark ethnographic methodology to address issues ranging from refugee reception and recognition to fair trade, intercultural education, and encounters with Gypsy populations.

Il presente volume, accessibile sia ai non esperti che ai ricercatori interessati in etnografia, offre un?introduzione alle applicazioni dell?antropologia per affrontare temi sociali attuali. Il saggio introduttivo dei curatori offre una panoramica sullo sviluppo della ricerca antropologica, dagli inizi esotici, con un approccio non-occidentale, fino alla discussione odierna di atteggiamenti di crescente impegno nella nostra societ{hooka} globalizzata. I casi di studio raccolti nel volume utilizzano i metodi etnografici caratteristici dell?antropologia trattando vari argomenti, dall?accoglimento e il riconoscimento dei rifugiati al fair trade, dall?educazione interculturale agli incontri con la popolazione romani.
