L’Africa e i flussi globali. Etnografie contemporanee.
Il corso mira a illustrare alcune delle dinamiche che si possono trovare oggi nel continente africano, con una particolare attenzione a come esse si declinino in flussi più globali. Seguendo la proposta di J. e J. Comaroff di ribaltare uno sguardo miope che vede l’Africa come recettore di dinamiche che hanno origine altrove, si indagherà come invece una serie di questioni problematiche nate nell’Africa coloniale e postcoloniale stiano oggi investendo l’Occidente. In questa ottica si analizzeranno temi come la democrazia, i confini, il capitale, l’identità e il multiculturalismo.
Programma inglese
Africa and global flows. Contemporary Ethnographies.
This course aims to illustrate some of the dynamics that can be found in the African continent today, with a particular focus on how they are declined into more global flows. Following J. and J. Comaroff's proposal to overturn a myopic view that sees Africa as a receptor of dynamics originating elsewhere, we will investigate how instead a series of problematic issues born in colonial and post-colonial Africa are now affecting the West. In this perspective, themes such as democracy, borders, capital, identity and multiculturalism will be analysed.
The course aims to provide knowledge and understanding of the methodological, critical and applicable aspects of the anthropological disciplines; it proposes geographical areas and sectorial perspectives in which anthropological projects are activated; it shows the variability of anthropological fields of interest; it enables the student to master the anthropological topics in order to use them and apply them in other fields of study while using the correct specific language. With the acquired knowledge the student will be able to develop autonomous ability of connections with other disciplines in the various historical epochs and cultural contexts.
