Charles Hale gives the talk as part of the Franklin College Visiting Scholar Program. He holds a joint appointment with the departments of African and African Diaspora Studies and of Anthropology at University of Texas at Austin. Professor Hale’s scholarly interests include identity politics, racism, neoliberalism, and resistance among indigenous peoples of LatinAmerica. His talk will explore shifts in positionality involved in activist research, and explore the question of why academia has been so reluctant to take up the call foractivist scholarship and institutionalize its key tenets.
This lecture is also sponsored by the UGA Department of Anthropology and the Center for Integrative Conservation.
