Dieser Band untersucht die Rolle indianischer Medien, vor allem Radio und Zeitungen, bei der politisch stürmischen Herausbildung einer souverän gestalteten indigenen Wissenskultur der Gegenwart - mit einem eigenen Bildungssystem und einer erneuerten und vielfältigen Festkultur. Im Mittelpunkt der Feldforschung steht die knapp 5000 Einwohner starke Ojibwe-Reservation Lac Courte Oreilles im Nordwesten des US-Bundesstaates Wisconsin. Ihr Beispiel zeigt, dass die Ureinwohner Nordamerikas bereits seit Langem in der Moderne leben - in einer eigenen, spezifisch indigenen Variante der Moderne.

The Handbook is divided into four sections: -Part I: Interfaces examines Social Anthropology's disciplinary connections, from Art and Literature to Politics and Economics, from Linguistics to Biomedicine, from History to Media Studies. -Part II: Places examines place, region, culture, and history, from regional, area studies to a globalized world -Part III: Methods examines issues of method; from archives to war zones, from development projects to art objects, and from ethics to comparison -Part IV: Futures anticipates anthropologies to come: in the Brain Sciences; in post-Development; in the Body and Health; and in new Technologies and Materialities Edited by the leading figures in social anthropology, the Handbook includes a substantive introduction by Richard Fardon, a think piece by Jean and John Comaroff, and a concluding last word on futures by Marilyn Strathern. The authors - each at the leading edge of the discipline - contribute in-depth chapters on both the foundational ideas and the latest research.

From 2004 to 2006 the Osage Nation conducted a contentious governmental reform process in which sharply differing visions arose over the new government's goals, the Nation's own history, and what it means to be Osage. The primary debates were focused on biology, culture, natural resources, and sovereignty. Osage anthropologist Jean Dennison documents the reform process in order to reveal the lasting effects of colonialism and to illuminate the possibilities for indigenous sovereignty. In doing so, she brings to light the many complexities of defining indigenous citizenship and governance in the twenty-first century. By situating the 2004-6 Osage Nation reform process within its historical and current contexts, Dennison illustrates how the Osage have creatively responded to continuing assaults on their nationhood. A fascinating account of a nation in the midst of its own remaking, Colonial Entanglement presents a sharp analysis of how legacies of European invasion and settlement in North America continue to affect indigenous people's views of selfhood and nationhood.

The modern country of Ghana (former British Gold Coast) derives its name from the Ghana Empire. Why Wagadu?
