About the Journal des anthropologues

The main aim of the Journal des Anthropologues is to encourage the distribution of recent anthropological work concerning the transformation of the contemporary world and the new research objects. Each issue is based on a comparative perspective, bringing together research in a variety of cultural areas. There is analysis of the discipline’s practices and evolution, also from pluri-disciplinary points of view. Careful attention is paid to epistemological aspects and fieldwork. With these directions in mind, the journal’s editorial committee has published works by well-established researchers as well as young researchers exploring new fields of enquiry.

Since the 1980s, anthropologists from Africa, Latin America, Asia or the Balkans conduct fieldwork in Western Europe. Their approach marks an “inversion” of the movement associated with modern anthropology, with Western ethnographers taking the societies of the rest of the world as enigmas to be deciphered through investigation. However, the works of these anthropologists remain unknown. This dossier, rooted in a reflective perspective, deals with these ethnographies that we suggest to call “non-aligned”. The authors reflect upon the way in which different socio-political hierarchies have shaped their theoretical and methodological options as well as their academic paths. What happens when Europeans become “indigenous” under the pen of anthropologists coming from their former colonies or peripheries?
