(July 12 and 19) The 148th and 149th Taoyaka Program Seminar

The 148th and 149th TAOYAKA Program Seminars will be held as follows.
These seminars are open to all.

■ Date and time : (148th) Friday, July 12th, 13:00-16:00
(149th) Friday, July 19th, 13:00-16:00
■ Venue: 203 lecture room, IDEC (Graduate School of International Development and Cooperation)
■ Lecture title : Hope and Futurity
■ Lecturer : Dr. Hirokazu MIYAZAKI, Kay Davis Professor, Professor of Anthropology, Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, Northwestern University, USA and Professor (Special Appointment), Graduate School for International Development and Cooperation, Hiroshima University
■ Language : English
■ Abstract : This two-part lecture seeks to examine two interrelated anthropological categories—the gift and exchange—side-by-side with a view to reflecting on how, and in what sense, anthropology may become a hopeful form of knowledge. The first lecture investigates how the gift originally emerged as an anthropological category and how it has illuminated new dimensions of human sociality and temporality as the category is stretched to different ethnographic cases and new social and cultural phenomena. The second lecture examines how anthropology has long sought to critique economics, how it has struggled to expand the category of economy beyond calculative reason, and how the idea of exchange has served as an expansive and even emancipatory analytical tool for anthropology.
