9780674779617: Routes: Travel and Translation in the Late Twentieth Century
Críticas:

[An] interesting situation can occur, suggests cultural anthropologist James Clifford, when the issue is not who should have custody of the objects [in museums] but rather what they mean. As he explores the subject in the essays collected in Routes, he compels the reader to look at these matters in a totally new way...As Clifford puts it, the museum [has] had to become 'a contact zone,' in which the collection would 'become part of an ongoing historical, political, moral relationship' between the culture that produced the objects and the members of another culture who would come to view them. The idea of a 'contact zone' relationship becomes even more startling when the objects are not in a museum, but are located at a cultural site...[G]uided by Clifford's view of museums and cultural and historical sites, the observant tourist will never be able to see them in the same way again. -- Michael Kenney Boston Globe The path Clifford clears for himself is amply justified; his scholarship is always careful, his questions honest and probing, his use of the first person discreet. One could not ask for a better informed, more intelligent or probing advance guard. Routes is a beautifully produced book with plentiful illustrations, an intelligent index, and almost no misprints. -- Peter Hulme New Formations It is a measure of Clifford's nonchalant erudition that Routes gives rise to so many diverse ideas. -- Mark Abley Times Literary Supplement As his use of essay form might suggest, Clifford tends to be a scout or advance guard, a surveyor of terrain, a reporter of difficulties ahead, a clearer of ground; not himself a colonist or settler...Very much a cultural theorist for our times, Clifford's emphasis is on conceptual repertory that can be used in ways dialogic, contingent, and tactical...As Routes leaves us to think through the questions posed in its pages, Clifford will already be opening up new paths, formulating new terminologies, asking new questions...Ultimately, however, the path Clifford clears for himself is amply justified: his scholarship is always careful, his questions honest and probing, his use of the first person discreet. One could not ask for a better informed, more intelligent or probing advance guard. Routes is a beautifully produced book with plentiful illustrations [and] an intelligent index. -- Peter Hulme New Formations: A Journal of Culture/Theory/Politics Whether discussing immigrants, diasporas, or museums, Clifford looks at the intercultural border as a place of encounter, collision, and communication between groups. This is a scholarly yet accessible work that asks us to rethink the cultural dimensions of human existence. Booklist A noted anthropologist examines the complexities of human interaction across cultures and continents in a...revelatory collection of essays. 'How do groups negotiate themselves in external relationships, and how is a culture also a site of travel for others?' These are two of the broad questions raised by Clifford in pursuit of his admonition that 'new representational strategies are needed, and are, under pressure, emerging.' Thus does Clifford discuss diasporic and migratory peoples, unexplored Western influences on indigenous peoples, and the effects of new communication technologies on the global movement of people...[A] fresh and well-documented perspective on human global movement. Kirkus Reviews

Reseña del editor:

When culture makes itself at home in motion, where does an anthropologist stand? This collection of works aims to be a moving picture of a world that doesn't stand still, that reveals itself in airport lounges and car parks. Travel and its difficult companion, translation, are taken as openings into a complex modernity. The author contemplates a world ever more connected, yet not homogeneous, expanding across colonization, capitalist expansion, immigration, labour mobility and tourism. The author's concerns are with struggles to displace stereotypes, to recognize divergent histories, and to sustain "postcolonial" and "tribal" identities in contexts of domination and globalization.
