Welcome to Anthropologies-in-Translation

This is an anthropology research network which engages with academics, practitioners and others within and beyond academic settings.  We are interested in the construction, production and utlisation of knowledge grounded in anthropological approaches which allow for reflexive understandings of our lived settings.

The site and research network was established in 2007 to engage in a wide range of research and networking activities with an aim to consider anthropological worlds as processual spaces of engagement: this draws on ideas of knowledge as practice and ongoing spaces of our lived experiences  - we make meanings of worlds that are in the process of ‘happening’ even as we study and construct knowledge of these settings.  We facilitate a research network committed to engaging with people in multiple lifeworlds through diverse knowledge forms. 

We seek to demonstrate research and teaching activities in terms of an anthropology which is accessible in contemporary settings and allows for transformative spaces in making sense of our world(s). This network brings together anthropologists and other researchers interested in engaging with and making sense of humans through these translatable spaces.  We invite comments from anthropologists, other researchers and practitioners working on these and related issues.
