20. Future

For Introduction to Anthropology 2019 please read Tim Ingold, “Anthropology for the Future” (106-131) in Anthropology: Why It Matters.

Please comment below by 9am Friday. At the end of class on Wednesday, I asked if Ingold’s “New Synthesis” (105) and advice for anthropology would be enough and in time, given the issues we face in the world today. Feel free to speculate on that!

You may also use this comment as a way of reviewing a concept we have previously discussed in preparation for the Final Exam.
