(p.1) Introduction
Engaged Anthropology

Stuart Kirsch

University of California Press

The introduction examines the varieties of engaged research practices in anthropology. It defines engagement in terms of interventions into politics, especially in relation to concerns about social and environmental justice. It also describes the resulting innovations. In addition, it emphasizes the importance of reflexivity for analyzing engaged research practices. Many of the examples in the book address property disputes and their resolution through the law.

Keywords:   engaged research, innovation, law, politics, property, reflexivity, social justice, writing culture
