Reviews

“This is an outstanding book … [which] provides an anthropological approach to the understanding and analysis of sociohistorical contexts which support intellectual exchanges in Asia. It is a uniquely engaging volume which not only brings together ethnographic insights from a variety of different geographical contexts but suggests novel methodological and theoretical approaches to the study of intellectual life.” • Filippo Osella, University of Sussex

“This is a bold and innovative book about the complex realities of living in a global age … It is both comprehensive in its breadth and precise in its ethnographic detail.” • Arkotong Longkumer, University of Edinburgh

Description

Dialogues, encounters and interactions through which particular ways of knowing, understanding and thinking about the world are forged lie at the centre of anthropology. Such ‘intellectual exchange’ is also central to anthropologists’ own professional practice: from their interactions with research participants and modes of pedagogy to their engagements with each other and scholars from adjacent disciplines. This collection of essays explores how such processes might best be studied cross-culturally. Foregrounding the diverse interactions, ethical reasoning, and intellectual lives of people from across the continent of Asia, the volume develops an anthropology of intellectual exchange itself.
