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.

Violences and Terrors. Subjects and Institutions

The ideological status of violence has evolved considerably since the end of the Cold War and it is only recently that the elimination of violence has emerged as a major stake in the pacification of social, political and environmental relationships, as well as interpersonal ones. Paradoxically, situations of terror and violence are more evident, more intense, in the face of denunciations from all sides. Because all environments manifest diverse forms of violence and are situated today within the antiterrorist struggle, anthropologists strive to analyse the varied and unexpected responses of subjects adapting to this situation under new constraints. Freeing oneself from the obvious daily media onslaughts, penetrating the multiplicity of logistics at play, letting oneself be destabilized by the confrontation of configurations and actors, such could sum up the message that this collection of texts communicates. These texts convey as much the impotence as the power of violence and terror across all continents.
