Afterword: Something to take back, Melanesia anthropology after relationality?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

This afterword is not a direct response to individual essays; it is instead a response to the spirit of the ‘Afrinesia’ experiment as a whole. It is prompted by a desire to imagine a return on the goodwill of the contributors to this special issue: Africanists thinking through the lessons and limits of Melanesian anthropology. In considering what Melanesianists might gain from thinking through Africanist anthropology, I speculate on potential openings. This includes an appreciation of the way that the experiment produces an effect of conventionality in the (Melanesianist) reader.
