RESTREPO, Eduardo. Difference, Hegemony and Disciplinization in Anthropology. univ.humanist. [online]. 2006, n.62, pp. 43-70. ISSN 0120-4807.
This article discusses a number of frameworks suggested to examine the different and uneven positioning of the anthropologies of the world. Notions of "world system of anthropology" and "center-periphery" are critically assessed. The article goes on to argue for a systemic approach capable of accounting for the contradictory implications of the structural inequalities existing in the world anthropological field. Finally, the article examines the ways in which these structural inequalities are established and reproduced from the perspective of hegemony and disciplinization.
Keywords : World anthropologies; anthropological canon; peripheral anthropologies; hegemony.
