Background Reading for Translators:
  1. Callan, Hilary & Underdown, Simon: Introductory Readings in Anthropology Paperback – 26 Jun 2013


The reader contains four sections: the first looks at the body and how it is interpreted in anthropology; at ways of thinking and communicating; at how social relations are organised; and at ways of engaging with nature, the environment and human-made objects. The second section illustrates anthropologists’ ideas about personhood as socially constituted, and ways of defining social boundaries and groups. The third studies the themes of globalisation (local and global processes); and the fourth the practice of anthropology, including anthropological ethics, methods and investigations.
