Protests in Public: What Responsibility Do Anthropologists around the World Have?

keywords:

world anthropologies

protest

ethics

Mass protests of all kinds are taking place on the streets and in public spaces in many cities and countries. Some seem to be led by youths seeking political reform and arguing against neoliberal policies, and some (especially in the U.S.) seem to be led by people complaining about certain governors' lockdown policies during the pandemic of 2020. These protests are not typically led by anthropologists, but they warrant anthropological attention. In particular, presentations in this panel will discuss protest movements in Indonesia, Brazil, Chile, and Hong Kong. We will address how the current pandemic will lead to new strategies and issues in activism and new responsibilities and ethical considerations for anthropologists. Political configurations and disciplinary particularities will shape these in varying ways and the presentations in this panel will begin to flesh out what anthropological responsibility in public protests might look like in four locations with recent large-scale social rebellion.
