Inhalt Anthropology’s recent history is full of turns that, it seems, point at paradigmatic shifts in theory and methodology. Indeed, turns have become so frequent that the word begins to sound hollow in the ears of many professional anthropologists. In the late 20th century, many of the turns addressed questions that arose with post-modernism in modern societies. The linguistic turn, the performative turn, the reflexive turn, the affective turn, the literary turn were all steps towards a clearing of older problems in anthropological theory. In the early 21st century, the ontological turn and the post-human turn have stirred debates about the place of anthropology in the humanities and whether anthropology still has an epistemological program. The more and more rapid turns leave little time to re-think anthropology as a human scholarly mission that aims at knowing others, their societies and cultures more thoroughly. Too many turns may cause disorientation and eventually no further insights in the human condition. However, they may also generate new understandings of human self-reflection in different societies and their cultures. This seminar thus asks an apparently simple but far-reaching question: What have these subsequent turns contributed to anthropology? It takes you through the jungle of scattered literature which may consist of programmatic publications or pamphlets but also of a few empirically based works that aim at showing how these approaches have generated new ethnographic knowledge.
