Europe studied by its “Others”. Past and contemporary experiences

Journal des Anthropologes


Fernanda Azeredo de Moraes, Yolinliztli Pérez-Hernández & Émir Mahieddin

This issue proposes to gather ethnographic studies carried out by 'non-European' anthropologists, perceived as such, or 'from' postcolonial immigration, who have conducted researches on European societies.

Here is a [non-exhaustive] list of possible themes concerned by the dossier:

  • The translation and appropriation of non-European theoretical, political, legal, or cultural concepts in European countries (feminicide, the legal status of rivers, coloniality, obstetric violence, among others)
  • The reception and adaptation of resistance practices ("artivism", escrachefunabatucadas)
  • The different center/periphery relations and their plasticity
  • Sensitive heritage, restitution, and museum relations between "North" and "South
  • Religions, spiritualities, and secularism
  • Possibilities and limits of the comparative approach
  • Experiences of racialization and discrimination in the fieldwork or in the university and their epistemological and methodological effects
  • Career paths and experiences of 'non-European' researchers who study Europe
  • Thinking about European societies with theories coming from "elsewhere" (epistemologies of the South, de/post/anticolonial feminism, 'community' feminism -feminismo comunitario-, among others).

Accepted papers will be published in a thematic dossier of the Journal des Anthropologes in December 2022


Abstracts of proposals (5,000 characters) should be sent by e-mail, in French or English, in Word format, before 1 October 2021 to the three coordinators with a copy to the editorial staff of the Journal des Anthropologues (afamsh-parisfr), and full papers (if accepted), with a maximum length of 40,000 characters (including spaces) before 15 March 2022. Articles will be published either in French or English.
