Selfhood, Affect, Ontology

Monday, February 28, 2011

Wenner-Gren Foundation, 470 Park Avenue South, 8th Fl

Presented By

Presented by the Anthropology Section

 

This essay has three key themes: ontology (what kinds of beings there are in the world); affect (cognitive and corporal attunements to such entities); and selfhood (relatively reflexive centers of attunement). To explore these themes, it focuses on women’s care for chickens among speakers of Q’eqchi’-Maya living in the cloud-forests of highland Guatemala.

Speaker

Paul Kockleman

Columbia University

A reception will precede the meeting at 6:00 pm
