Part I of II: Anthropology in Brazil is undergoing many transformations. Concomitantly with its increasing expansion and consolidation as a field of study, ongoing processes and reconfigurations which have been propelled by accelerated social, political and technological changes have brought new dilemmas, new challenges and new perspectives to both anthropological research and the roles played by anthropologists in distinctive areas of specialization. The papers reunited in this session aim at providing a global (and critical) overview of the multiple challenges faced by both anthropologists engaged with the more established studies of indigenous and afro-descendent populations in Brazil as well as by those more directly involved with issues pertaining to contemporary globalization and global capitalism. This session is sponsored by ABA, the Association of Brazilian Anthropology.
