The Institute of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology of the UW invites for Prof. Martin Holbraad’s lecture “Three ontological turn-ons”. It will take place on 2nd December.
Martin Holbraad is a researcher of Social Anthropology at UCL. His main field research is in Cuba, where he focuses on Afro-Cuban religions and revolutionary politics. Among his books are: “Truth in Motion: The Recursive Anthropology of Cuban Divination” and “The Ontological Turn: An Anthropological Exposition”. At present he directs a 5-year ERC-funded research project on the anthropology of revolutionary politics.
The aim of this seminar is to clarify some of the basic premises of the so-called “ontological turn” in recent anthropological theory. The ontological turn involves deepening and radicalizing three features that have always been present in mainstream anthropological research, namely reflexivity, conceptualization and experimentation.
This seminar will take place on 2nd December at 10.30, room 108 at the Institute of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology of the University of Warsaw (Żurawia Street 4).
More information about that event are available on the website of Institute of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology.
