Not only hybridity is socially produced, but it also reflects the unequal distribution of power between distinct social groups and, most importantly, some of its outcomes — such as syncretic religious cults — are essential in the production of new social configurations.

Amsterdam, Het Spinhuis, It is interesting to note that the novelty antroopologia this research tool is after all not as absolute as Marcus initially puts it. We are more attentive — as I have previously emphasized — to issues anropologia agency and power. British Social Anthropology, One of the main goals of Herskovits was to explain why some aspects of African cultures in the New World were more resilient than others.

But often they are linked to movements of alternation rather than creolization: The Study of Cultural Divusionismo. On the one hand, as we have seen, the empowerment of African-Americans was the driving force behind his research. Boston, MA, Beacon Press.

Contextualização da disciplina Antropologia e cultura brasileira – ENGENHARIA

New York, Alfred Knopf. In both cases, albeit in different terms, the study of flows of people and cultural forms has become a highly visible feature of contemporary anthropology.


Focusing on the works of Melville Herskovits and Roger Bastide, this article argues for a less biased imaged of acculturation theory and stresses the ways in which some of its achievements can inspire current approaches to cultural globalization.

The Apotheosis of Captain Cook: Herskovits has been criticized on the same grounds. But certain increasingly popular forms of difusionisml are also connected to forms of cultural antrropologia based on the scenic preservation or reinvention of untouched authenticity. Oxford, Oxford University Press. Herskovits can be seen as the most important author in the thematization of acculturation theory, which he viewed as a modernist update of early diffusionism.

Some anthropologists and historians have been actively involved in the identification of such differences within the African-American field of research e. Oxford, Oxford University Press. Cultural and Institutional Crossings in the History of Anthropology.

Although Herskovits — like most diffusionists — did stress difusiknismo as the vifusionismo mechanism of human history, he did not rule out the idea that in some cases similarities between cultural items might derive from independent invention. Contemporary anthropology has developed a consistent interest in the study of modes of circulation of people, objects and antropolpgia associated with current cultural globalization.

But they stress the fact that a more attentive reading of the classics shows how some of the concerns underlying post-modern re-formulations of culture were not absent from such different authors as Boas, Benedict or Sapir. In a certain sense — as I will argue later on — we can and must be more radical towards their limitations.


Acculturation theorists tried to build new ways of reconciling this emphasis on circulation and the demand for thick observation. The Social History of British Anthropology, New York, Boni and Livreright.

Anthropology of the Modern World. The Study of Cultural Contact.


The foundational mechanism of this new mode of cultural production, in the case of cultural tourism, is the replication of authenticity and the denial of cultural contact. Oxford, Polity Press, European Mythmaking in the Antropologis. Portuguese-Americans along the Eastern Seaboard.

Difusionisme (arqueologia)

One of its main aspects, as several authors have emphasized, has to do with the increasing reflexivity of culture. Focusing on the works of Melville Herskovits and Roger Bastide, this article argues for a less biased imaged of acculturation theory and stresses the ways in which some of its achievements can inspire current approaches to cultural globalization.

This interest is usually presented as a new development in anthropological theory and its possible predecessors, such as diffusionism and acculturation theory, dismissed as irrelevant. Acculturation theorists were thus able to attune diffusionism with modernist anthropology and its emphasis on synchronic cultural wholeness.

Similarly, in some of the papers he wrote in the s, Herskovits was eager to admit his initial Africanist excesses: On the one hand, he defended that in order to understand the development of Afro-Brazilian religions one ought to admit the reciprocal autonomy of the social and cultural.

In this sense, globalization is a powerful factor of cultural and social differentiation that cannot be examined solely in terms of Herskovitsian counter-acculturation. On the other hand, although his treatment of issues of power was not extensive, he was not completely indifferent to them.
