15. Social Position

For The History of Anthro Thought after finishing the section “On Queering Anthropological Knowledge” we start the section “On Social Position and Ethnographic Authority” with three articles:

  • Donna Haraway, “Situated Knowledges: The Science Question in Feminism and the Privilege of Partial Perspective” (1988)
  • Delmos Jones, “Anthropology and the Oppressed: A Reflection on ‘Native’ Anthropology” (1995)
  • Dana-Ain Davis, “What Did You Do Today? Notes From a Politically Engaged Anthropologist” (2003)

Next: 16. Ethnographic Authority


Living Anthropologically means documenting history, interconnection, and power during a time of global transformation. We need to care for others as we attempt to build a world together.
