Can the Unthinkable Be: A Methodological Conversation Across Anthropology and History

Pacchanta
2110 Taliaferro Hall
Monday, February 17, 2020 - 4:00 PM

Please join the Nathan and Jeanette Miller Center for Historical Studies for an afternoon lecture with Dr. Marisol de la Cadena. Light refreshments will be provided.

This lecture is part of the Miller Center's 2019-2020 Truth and History Series.

Marisol de la Cadena was trained as an anthropologist in Peru, England France and the US. She is interested in ethnographic concepts that blur the distinction between what we call theory and the empirical, and the limits of opening them to what they cannot grasp. Her most recent work, Earth Beings. Ecologies of Practice Across Andean Worlds (2015) is based on conversations with two Quechua speaking men who lived in the surroundings of Ausangate, an earth being and mountain in Cuzco, Peru. Currently her field sites are cattle ranches, peasant farms, slaughter houses, cattle fairs, breed-making genetic laboratories, and veterinary schools in Colombia. She is currently Professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Davis.
