Anthropological Knowledge on the Move

As the world around us changes at an accelerating pace, anthropology continuously has to rethink its topics of research and dare to take on new ones. The critical agility and creativity to identify new relevant topics of research or to approach old ones in novel ways is perhaps most powerfully present in younger generations of anthropologists. With this volume, therefore, the ABv (Antropologen Beroepsvereniging [Dutch Anthropological Association]) gives early-career anthropologists a podium to make their work accessible to a broad audience interested in ethnographically informed analyses of how, under contemporary global conditions of rapid technological, economic, and political change, people cope with emotional or material hardship, deal with violence of a physical and structural nature, and are persistently engaged in reconstructing social relations.
