Abstract

I am investigating performance training as an exploratory mode of inquiry. In conjunction with this I ask how may performative enquiry together with anthropological ways of working lead to sustainable forms of academic knowledge production. The underlying aim of my project is to find ways to decolonise academic scholarship that transcend the apparent complacency that cultural critique has proffered (Escobar and Restrepo 2005). An anthropology otherwise, in resonance with Escobar and Restrepo’s manifesto, in which I am exploring a recrafting of what anthropologists make. This needs to include who they make it for, in other words who anthropologists are accountable to, as well as the expected ‘products’ of their scholarly endeavours. This paper is an afterthought on the Walking Threads and how the event can further our understanding in collaborative work.
