  • Steering Clear of the Dead: Avoiding Ancestors in the Moquegua Valley,
    • Authors: Nicola Sharratt
      Abstract: Ancestors are a central and recurring theme in scholarship on mortuary practices in the pre-Hispanic Andes. Archaeological and ethnohistoric data indicate that in many times and places the dead were critical social actors. Physical interaction with the bodies and spaces of ancestors was important in legitimizing claims to heritage, land, resources, and status. Yet, relatively neglected in the literature on Andean attitudes to the dead is how people dealt with other people's ancestors. To address this, I examine how a Late Intermediate Period community, who circa AD 1250 occupied an earlier terminal Middle Horizon village in southern Peru, managed interactions with their predecessors’ dead. Excavations at the site reveal considerable evidence for active avoidance of cemeteries associated with the older village, which contrasts with the re-utilization of earlier domestic space. Moreover, aversion to the ancestors of others was practiced alongside active engagement with the new community's “own” dead. Drawing on Lau's recent (2013) discussion of alterity in the ancient Andes, I propose that just as interacting with one's own ancestors is frequently interpreted as a way of reifying belonging, steering clear of the dead can be equally powerful in community building and identity negotiation during major sociopolitical upheaval. [alterity, funerary practice, Andean South America]Los ancestros son un tema central y recurrente en la investigación sobre las prácticas mortuorias en los Andes prehispánicos. Los datos arqueológicos y etnohistóricos indican que en muchas ocasiones y lugares los muertos fueron actores sociales críticos. La interacción física con los cuerpos y los espacios de los ancestros fue importante en la legitimización de reclamaciones sobre patrimonio, tierra, recursos y estatus. Sin embargo, relativamente descuidada en la literatura sobre las actitudes andinas hacia los muertos es la manera como las personas se enfrentan a los ancestros de las otras personas. Para abordar esto, examino cómo una comunidad en el período Intermedio Tardío, que alrededor del año 1250 DC ocupó el poblado Horizonte Medio previamente un terminal en el sur del Perú, manejaba las interacciones con los muertos de sus predecesores. Las excavaciones en el sitio revelan evidencia considerable de una evitación activa de los cementerios asociados con el pueblo más antiguo, lo cual contrasta con la reutilización de espacios domésticos anteriores. Adicionalmente, la aversión a los ancestros de otros fue practicada junto a un compromiso activo con los muertos “propios” de la nueva comunidad. Basada en la discusión reciente de Lau (2013) sobre alteridad en los Andes antiguos, propongo que, así como el interactuar con los propios ancestros de uno es frecuentemente interpretado como una manera de reificar el sentido de pertenencia, el alejarse de los muertos puede ser igualmente poderoso en la construcción de la comunidad y la negociación de identidad, durante una gran revuelta sociopolítica.

  • “Tangled Up in These Conceptualities”: Sanction, Protest, and Ideology
           in Berlin, Germany
    • Authors: Kenneth McGill
      Abstract: This article examines one informant's approach to the relationship between ideological concepts and political power. I argue that ideological representation must be understood on its own terms, rather than within a larger theory of discourse. I point toward three key qualities of every encounter with ideological representation: subjectivity, discontinuity, and commitment. The fieldwork on which this article is based occurred in Berlin, Germany, during the fall 2014. During this period, my research focused on activists committed to overturning the sanctioning policy (Sanktionspolitik), which allows case managers to dock the unemployment benefits of their clients. [ideology, subjectivity, welfare state, Germany]Este artículo examina la aproximación de un informante a la relación entre conceptos ideológicos y poder político. Argumento que la representación ideológica debe ser entendida en sus propios términos, más que dentro de una teoría más amplia del discurso. Llamo la atención hacia tres cualidades claves de cada encuentro con una representación ideológica: subjetividad, discontinuidad y compromiso.

  • Transposing Brazilian Carnival: Religion, Cultural Heritage, and
           Secularism in Rio de Janeiro
    • Authors: Martijn Oosterbaan
      Abstract: This article discusses the rise of evangelical carnival parades in Rio de Janeiro in relation to spectacular carnival parades that feature Afro-Brazilian religious elements. The article exposes divergent intersections of religion and cultural heritage in Brazilian carnival. The first intersection aims to affirm the intrinsic connection between samba enredo carnival music and Afro-Brazilian religion by means of cultural heritage narratives, and the second type employs similar narratives to undo this connection, attempting to make samba enredo accessible to evangelical religious performance. The article demonstrates the important role secularism plays in upholding distinctions between “culture” and “religion,” and shows how evangelical carnival groups engage with such historical formations by means of estratégia (strategy)—evangelical performances in cultural styles that are commonly perceived as “worldly.” This estratégia depends on and proposes a particular set of semiotic ideologies that allows for the separation of cultural form and spiritual content. Efforts to open up “national” cultural styles to different religious groups in light of multicultural politics are laudable, but advocates of such politics should keep in mind that cultural heritage regimes concerning samba push in the opposite direction and support a different set of semiotic ideologies. [religion, carnival, secularism, cultural heritage, Brazil]Este artículo discute el aumento de los desfiles carnavalescos evangélicos en Río de Janeiro comparado con los desfiles carnavalescos espectaculares que exhiben elementos religiosos afro-brasileños. El artículo expone intersecciones divergentes de religión y patrimonio cultural en el carnaval brasileño. La primera intersección tiene el propósito de afirmar la conexión intrínseca entre la música de carnaval samba enredo y la religión afro-brasileña por medio de narrativas de patrimonio cultural, y el segundo tipo emplea narrativas similares para deshacer esta conexión, intentando hacer la samba enredo accesible a las presentaciones religiosas evangélicas. El artículo demuestra el importante papel que el secularismo juega en mantener las distinciones entre “cultura” y “religión” y muestra cómo los grupos carnavalescos evangélicos involucran tales formaciones históricas por medio de una estratégia (estrategia)—presentaciones evangélicas en estilos culturales que son comúnmente percibidos como “mundanos”. Esta estratégia depende de, y propone un juego particular de ideologías semióticas que permite la separación de la forma cultural y el contenido espiritual. Los esfuerzos para abrir los estilos culturales “nacionales” a diferentes grupos religiosos a la luz de la política multicultural son laudables, pero defensores de tal política deberían tener presente que los regímenes de patrimonio cultural concernientes a la samba empujan en la dirección opuesta y apoyan un diferente juego de ideologías semióticas.

  • “The Campesino Was Born for the Campo”: A Multispecies Approach to
           Territorial Peace in Colombia
    • Authors: Angela J. Lederach
      Abstract: I draw on ethnographic fieldwork with a social movement, the Peaceful Process of Reconciliation and Integration of the Alta Montaña, to explore practices of peacebuilding in rural Colombia. I use a multispecies lens to interrogate the discourse of territorial peace (paz territorial), revealing the ways in which both violence and peace intertwine human and nonhuman lives and relations in the Alta Montaña. Through analysis of the everyday assemblages forged between people, animals, forests, and crops, I demonstrate how the multispecies approach to peacebuilding found in the Alta Montaña sharpens our understanding of the mutually reinforcing processes of violent conflict and environmental degradation. As a result, I argue that multispecies anthropological analysis also enables a capacious conceptualization of peace, one that recognizes the full life-worlds of people as they seek, in their everyday lives, to reweave—and create anew—the social and ecological fabric of their communities. [violence, displacement, multispecies, peacebuilding, Colombia]Me baso en el trabajo de campo etnográfico con un movimiento social, el Proceso Pacífico de Reconciliación e Integración de la Alta Montaña, para explorar las prácticas de construcción de paz en Colombia rural. Uso un lente de multiespecies para interrogar el discurso de paz territorial, revelando las maneras en las cuales tanto la violencia como la paz entrelazan vidas y relaciones humanas y no humanas en la Alta Montaña. A través del análisis de ensamblajes cotidianos forjados entre personas, animales, bosques y cultivos, demuestro cómo la aproximación de multiespecies a la construcción de paz encontrada en la Alta Montaña aclara nuestra comprensión de los procesos mutuamente reforzadores del conflicto violento y la degradación ambiental. Como resultado, argumento que el análisis antropológico de multiespecies también hace posible una conceptualización amplia de la paz, una que reconoce los mundos de vida completos de personas en la medida que buscan, en sus vidas diarias, retejer—y crear de nuevo—la fábrica social y ecológica de sus comunidades.

  • Imperial Expansion and Local Agency: A Case Study of Labor Organization
           under Inca Rule
    • Authors: Francisco Garrido; Diego Salazar
      Abstract: Imperial expansion can produce broad economic intensification throughout the provinces to provide key economic resources for the state. However, not all such economic intensification is the direct result of the imposition of an imperial political economy over subject populations. This article presents evidence for some cases where intensification occurred due to bottom-up responses of small groups that were able to profit from imperial conquest. In the case of the Incas, although the imposition of a labor-tax system, or mit'a, was an important economic device for their imperial expansion, we question its universality. This article addresses the economic changes that local communities experienced within the Tawantinsuyu by comparing the coexistence of attached and independent modes of production in two cases of mining production in the Atacama Desert, in northern Chile. This contributes to finding and elaborating on explicit archaeological indicators that enable us to contrast both modes of engagement with the political economy of the Inca Empire and to identify, archaeologically, alternative and independent local responses to imperial expansion. Our study thus energizes debates on how and to what extent local populations, under conditions of empire, can negotiate spaces and activities outside of state control. [mit'a, prehistoric mining, bottom-up dynamics, imperial expansion, Inca Empire]La expansión imperial puede producir una amplia intensificación económica a través de las provincias para proveer recursos económicos claves para el estado. Sin embargo, no toda la intensificación económica es el resultado directo de la imposición de una economía política imperial sobre las poblaciones sometidas. Este artículo presenta evidencia de algunos casos donde la intensificación ocurrió debido a las respuestas de abajo hacia arriba de pequeños grupos que fueron capaces de beneficiarse de la conquista imperial. En el caso de los Incas, aunque la imposición de un sistema de impuestos sobre el trabajo, o mit'a, fue un importante mecanismo económico para su expansión imperial, cuestionamos su universalidad. Este artículo aborda los cambios económicos que las comunidades locales experimentaron dentro del Tawantinsuyu comparando la coexistencia de modos de producción controlados e independientes en dos casos de producción minera en el desierto de Atacama, en el norte de Chile. Esto contribuye a encontrar y elaborar indicadores arqueológicos explícitos que nos posibiliten contrastar tanto los modos de interacción con la economía política del Imperio Inca como identificar, arqueológicamente, respuestas locales alternativas e independientes a la expansión imperial. Nuestro estudio entonces energiza los debates acerca de cómo y en qué medida las poblaciones locales, bajo condiciones del imperio, pueden negociar espacios y actividades por fuera del control del estado.

  • Visualization and Movement as Configurations of Human–Nonhuman
           Engagements: Precolonial Geometric Earthwork Landscapes of the Upper
           Purus, Brazil
    • Authors: Pirjo Kristiina Virtanen; Sanna Saunaluoma
      Abstract: Producing geometric designs and images on materials, such as pottery, basketry, and bead artwork, as well as the human body, is elemental and widespread among Amazonian Indigenous peoples. In this article, we examine the different geometric forms identified in the precolonial geoglyph architecture of southwestern Amazonia in the context of geometric design making and relational ontologies. Our aim is to explore earthwork iconography through the lens of Amerindian visual arts and movement. Combining ethnographic and archaeological data from the Upper Purus, Brazil, the article shows how ancient history and socio-cosmology are deeply “written” onto the landscape in the form of geometric earthworks carved out of the soil, which materialize interactions between nonhuman and human actors. We underline skills in visualization, imaginative practices, and movement as ways to promote well-balanced engagements with animated life forms. Here, iconography inserted in the landscape is both a form of writing and also emerges as an agent, affecting people through visual and corporal practices. [geometric designs, earthworks, visualization, movement, Amazonia]El producir diseños e imágenes geométricos en materiales tales como cerámica, cestería, obras de arte en collares, así como el cuerpo humano, es elemental y extendido entre indígenas del Amazonas. En este artículo, examinamos las diferentes formas geométricas identificadas en la arquitectura precolonial de los geoglifos del suroeste de la Amazonia en el contexto de la creación de los diseños geométricos y el tipo relacional de ser. Nuestra meta es explorar la iconografía de los trabajos en la tierra a través de los lentes de las artes visuales y el movimiento Amerindios. Combinando la información etnográfica y arqueológica del Purús Superior, Brasil, el artículo muestra cómo la historia antigua y la socio-cosmología están profundamente “escritas” en el paisaje en la forma de trabajos en la tierra geométricos labrados en el suelo, los cuales materializan las interacciones entre actores humanos y no humanos. Enfatizamos las destrezas en visualización, prácticas imaginativas, y movimiento como maneras de promover interacciones bien equilibradas con formas de vida animadas. Aquí, la iconografía insertada en el paisaje es a la vez una forma de escritura y también emerge como un agente, afectando a las personas a través de prácticas visuales y corporales. [diseños geométricos, obras de tierra, visualización, movimiento, Amazonia]A produção de desenhos geométricos e imagens em materiais como cerâmica, cestaria, miçanga, assim como no corpo humano é elementar e muito difundida entre os povos indígenas amazônicos.

O objetivo é examinar a iconografia de estruturas de terra através da lente das artes visuais ameríndias e do movimento. Combinando dados etnográficos e arqueológicos do Alto Purus, Brasil, o artigo mostra como a história antiga e a sócio-cosmologia estão profundamente “escritas” na paisagem na forma de estruturas geométricas de terra trinchadas no solo, que materializam interações entre atores não-humanos e humanos. Salientamos as habilidades humanas de visualização, práticas imaginativas e movimento como os meios de promover relações bem equilibradas com formas de vida animadas. Aqui a iconografia da paisagem é considerada tanto uma forma de escrita como um agente, afetando as pessoas através de práticas visuais e corporais.

  • Natural Graffiti and Cultural Plants: Memory, Race, and Contemporary
           Archaeology in Yosemite and Detroit
    • Authors: John M. Chenoweth
      Abstract: This article argues that some elements of material culture can creatively cross the line between notions of “nature” and “culture” as these and related ideas are often tacitly understood by some modern people. This has implications for the biosphere, but the division of these categories is also tied up with the division of people, processes of identification, memorialization, and the way some people are defined out of the human realm altogether. Modern material culture—objects used, left, manipulated, and removed by people—seems particularly adept at telling us about these categories in the minds of some modern people. An archaeology of the contemporary examines how people interact with different kinds of “natural” things in places where nature and culture, in the modern imaginary, meet and conflict. In the starkly different contexts of the city of Detroit and Yosemite National Park, such objects have been managed and manipulated in a way that speaks to crucial issues of memory, identity, and race. [contemporary archaeology, nature and culture, memory, national parks, Detroit]Este artículo argumenta que algunos elementos de la cultura material pueden de manera creativa cruzar la línea entre las nociones de “naturaleza” y “cultura”, en la medida en que éstos e ideas relacionadas son a menudo entendidos tácitamente por algunas personas modernas. Esto tiene implicaciones para la biosfera, pero la división de estas categorías está también ligada a la división de las personas, los procesos de identificación, la memorialización, y a la manera como algunos individuos son definidos enteramente fuera de la esfera humana. La cultura material moderna—objetos usados, dejados, manipulados, y removidos por individuos—parece particularmente experta en contarnos acerca de estas categorías en las mentes de algunos individuos modernos. Una arqueología de lo contemporáneo examina cómo las personas interactúan con diferentes clases de cosas “naturales” en lugares donde la naturaleza y la cultura, en el imaginario moderno, se encuentran y entran en conflicto. En los contextos severamente diferentes de la ciudad de Detroit y Yosemite National Park, tales objetos han sido manejados y manipulados de una manera que habla sobre cuestiones cruciales de memoria, identidad, y raza.

  • Anthropologists in Unexpected Places: Tracing Anthropological Theory,
           Practice, and Policy in Indians at Work
    • Authors: Mindy J. Morgan
      Abstract: During the 1930s, anthropologists were frequent contributors to the periodical, Indians at Work, published by the Office of Indian Affairs (OIA). While the magazine's primary purpose was to chronicle American Indian participation in federal relief programs, it also served as a larger forum for publishing and reprinting ethnographic works authored by anthropologists about American Indian communities. As such, it was a key site for mid-twentieth-century disciplinary debates, particularly in regard to establishing the subfield of applied anthropology. The varied contributions expose differences regarding the purpose and goals of the discipline as well as growing tensions between anthropologists and the OIA about the application of disciplinary knowledge to governmental policy. These struggles reveal the difficulty anthropologists had in locating contemporary American Indian communities within the larger US nation-state. Critically, the magazine also provided a space for tribal members as well as Indigenous anthropologists to engage in debates regarding ethnographic (mis)representation. [history of anthropology, anthropological practice, Indigenous studies, United States]Durante los años 1930s, los antropólogos fueron contribuidores frecuentes de la revista, Indians at Work, publicada por la Oficina de Asuntos Indígenas (OIA). Mientras el propósito primario de la revista era registrar la participación indígena americana en programas de alivio federal, también sirvió como un foro más amplio para la publicación y reimpresión de trabajos etnográficos escritos por antropólogos sobre las comunidades indígenas americanas. Como tal, fue un sitio clave para debates de la disciplina de mediados del siglo veinte, particularmente con relación a establecer el sub-campo de la antropología aplicada. Las contribuciones variadas revelan diferencias con relación al propósito y metas de la disciplina, así como crecientes tensiones entre antropólogos y la OIA acerca de la aplicación del conocimiento de la disciplina a las políticas gubernamentales. Estas luchas revelan la dificultad que tenían los antropólogos para situar las comunidades indígenas americanas contemporáneas dentro del más amplio estado-nación americano. Críticamente, la revista también proveyó un espacio para miembros tribales, así como antropólogos indigenistas para participar en debates sobre la (mis)representación etnográfica.

  • Uniquely Human: Cultural Norms and Private Acts of Mercy in the War Zone
    • Authors: Bilinda Straight
      Abstract: War-zone mercy—sparing of one's culturally constructed enemies in the midst of organized group violence—is a political act but also a potentially empathically motivated one that has contributed to shared expressive gestures across cultural boundaries and to international laws of war. This article elucidates historical and cross-cultural norms for war-zone mercy in order to provide a theoretical framework for scholarly research examining this behavior and offers a case study with systematically collected data about war-zone mercy during Kenyan pastoralist Samburu experiences of coalitional lethal violence (low-intensity chronic warfare). As a whole, this article presents evidence from human and nonhuman animal studies that war-zone mercy is a uniquely human form of empathy-produced altruism. Humans may be trained or culturally conditioned to kill, and yet widely available historical and cross-cultural examples of war-zone mercy underscore the ways in which prosocial emotions like empathy reveal and pervade the human. [war, agency, prosocial emotion, altruism, Kenya]Compasión en las zonas de guerra—perdonando a los enemigos culturalmente construidos en medio de la violencia de grupos organizados—es un acto político, pero también, uno potencialmente motivado por la empatía que ha contribuido a gestos expresivos compartidos a través de los límites culturales y las leyes internacionales de la guerra. Este artículo elucida las normas históricas e interculturales para el perdón en las zonas de guerra, con el fin de proveer un marco teórico a la investigación académica examinando esta conducta, y ofrece un estudio de caso con datos recolectados sistemáticamente acerca del perdón en las zonas de guerra durante las experiencias de violencia letal coalicionista de los pastores Samburu de Kenia (guerra crónica de baja intensidad). Como un todo, este artículo presenta evidencia de los estudios de animales humanos y no humanos que el perdón de las zonas de guerra es una forma únicamente humana de altruismo generado por la empatía. Los humanos pueden ser entrenados o culturalmente condicionados para matar, y aún ejemplos ampliamente disponibles del perdón en las zonas de guerra enfatizan las maneras en que las emociones prosociales como la empatía revelan y permean lo humano.

  • Historical Ecology of Cultural Keystone Places of the Northwest Coast
    • Authors: Dana Lepofsky; Chelsey Geralda Armstrong, Spencer Greening, Julia Jackley, Jennifer Carpenter, Brenda Guernsey, Darcy Matthews, Nancy J. Turner
      Abstract: For many Indigenous peoples, their traditional lands are archives of their histories, from the deepest of time to recent memories and actions. These histories are written in the landscapes’ geological features, contemporary plant and animal communities, and associated archaeological and paleoecological records. Some of these landscapes, recently termed “cultural keystone places” (CKPs), are iconic for these groups and have become symbols of the connections between the past and the future, and between people and place. Using an historical-ecological approach, we describe our novel methods and initial results for documenting the history of three cultural keystone places in coastal British Columbia, Canada: Hauyat, Laxgalts'ap (Old Town) and Dałk Gyilakyaw (Robin Town) (territories of Heiltsuk, Gitga'ata, and Gitsm'geelm, respectively). We combine data and knowledge from diverse disciplines and communities to tell the deep and recent histories of these cultural landscapes. Each of CKPs encompasses expansive landscapes of diverse habitats transformed by generations of people interacting with their surrounding environments. Documenting the “softer” footprints of past human-environmental interactions can be elusive and requires diverse approaches and novel techniques.Para muchos Indígenas, sus tierras tradicionales son archivos de sus historias, desde lo más profundo del tiempo a las más recientes memorias y acciones. Estas historias están escritas en las características geológicas de los paisajes, comunidades contemporáneas de plantas y animales, y registros arqueológicos y paleo-ecológicos asociados. Algunos de estos paisajes, recientemente denominados “lugares culturales claves” (CKPs), son icónicos para estos grupos y se han convertido en símbolos de las conexiones entre el pasado y el futuro, y entre las personas y el lugar. Usando una aproximación histórica-ecológica, describimos nuestros métodos novedosos y resultados iniciales para documentar la historia de tres lugares culturales claves en la Columbia Británica costera, Canadá: Hauyat, Laxgalts'ap (Old Town), y Dalk Gyilakyaw (Robin Town) (territorios de Heiltsuk, Gitga'ata, y Gitsm'geelm, respectivamente). Combinamos datos y conocimiento de diversas disciplinas y comunidades para contar las historias profundas y recientes de estos paisajes culturales. Cada uno de los CKPs abarca paisajes expansivos de diversos hábitats transformados por generaciones de personas interactuando con los ambientes circundantes. Documentar las huellas “más frescas” de las interacciones humano-ambientales puede ser elusivo y requiere diversas aproximaciones y técnicas novedosas.

  • But Some of Us Are Broke: Race, Gender, and the Neoliberalization of the
    • Authors: Tami Navarro
      Abstract: Anthropologists have paid increasing attention to neoliberalism in our research, yet we have been less willing to apply this lens to our own academic positioning and the ways these roles are shaped by privatization and market models. Lives and livelihoods in the American academy are increasingly determined by neoliberalism, and it is vital that we be both reflexive about and engaged around our positions within this project. This article explores the divides that separate various forms of academic labor (secure versus nonsecure, contract, etc.) as well as the raced and gendered implications of these tracks—in particular, the stark ways in which neoliberal transformations negatively affect women of color in the academy. [neoliberalism, academy, race, gender, contingent labor]Los antropólogos han prestado cada vez mayor atención al neoliberalismo en nuestra investigación, sin embargo, hemos estado menos dispuestos a aplicar este lente a nuestro propio posicionamiento académico, y a las maneras en que estos roles están moldeados por la privatización y los modelos del mercado.

Este artículo explora las divisiones que separan varias formas de trabajo académico (seguro versus no seguro, contrato, etc.) así como las implicaciones racializadas y de género de estas trayectorias—en particular, las formas severas en que las transformaciones neoliberales afectan negativamente a las mujeres de color en la academia.

  • Acculturation and Health: The Moderating Role of Sociocultural Context
    • Authors: Molly Fox; Zaneta M. Thayer, Pathik D. Wadhwa
      Pages: 405 - 421
      Abstract: Acculturation represents an important construct for elucidating the determinants and consequences of health disparities in minority populations. However, the processes and mechanisms underlying acculturation's effects on health are largely undetermined and warrant further study. We integrate concepts from anthropology and statistics to describe the role of sociocultural context as a putative modifier of the relationship between acculturation and health. Sociocultural context may influence the extent to which exposure to host culture leads to internalization of host cultural orientation and may influence the extent to which acculturation leads to stress and adoption of unhealthy behaviors. We focus on specific aspects of sociocultural context: (1) neighborhood ethno-cultural composition; (2) discrimination; (3) discrepancy between origin and host environments; (4) discrepancy between heritage and host cultures; (5) origin group, host group, and individual attitudes toward assimilation; (6) variation in targets of assimilation within host community; (7) public policy and resources; and (8) migration selection bias. We review and synthesize evidence for these moderation effects among first- and later-generation immigrants, refugees, and indigenous populations. Furthermore, we propose best-practices data-collection and statistical-analysis methods for this purpose, in order to improve our understanding of the complex, multilevel aspects of the relationship between acculturation and health. [acculturation, minority health, health disparities, sociocultural context, effect moderation, statistical interaction]La aculturación representa un constructo importante para dilucidar los determinantes y las consecuencias de las disparidades de salud en poblaciones minoritarias. Sin embargo, los procesos y mecanismos subyacentes de los efectos de la aculturación sobre la salud son en gran medida indeterminados y ameritan un estudio más profundo. Integramos conceptos de la antropología y la estadística para describir el rol del contexto sociocultural como modificador putativo de la relación entre aculturación y salud. El contexto sociocultural puede influenciar en la medida en que la exposición a la cultura anfitriona lleva a la internalización de la orientación cultural anfitriona, y puede influenciar en la medida en que la aculturación lleva al estrés y a la adopción de conductas no saludables. Nos enfocamos en los aspectos específicos del contexto sociocultural: (1) Composición etnocultural de los vecindarios; (2) discriminación; (3) discrepancia entre el origen y ambientes anfitriones; (4) discrepancia entre patrimonio y culturas anfitrionas; (5) grupo origen, grupo anfitrión, y actitudes individuales hacia la asimilación; (6) variación en objetivos de asimilación dentro de la comunidad anfitriona; (7) política pública y recursos; y (8) sesgo de selección de la migración. Revisamos y sintetizamos la evidencia para estos efectos de moderación entre migrantes de primera y última generación, refugiados, y poblaciones indígenas. Adicionalmente, proponemos las mejores prácticas de recolección de datos y métodos de análisis estadístico para este propósito, a fin de mejorar nuestro entendimiento de los aspectos complejos y multinivel de la relación entre aculturación y salud.

  • A Qualitative Analysis of How Anthropologists Interpret the Race Construct

      Pages: 422 - 434
      Abstract: This article assesses anthropological thinking about the race concept and its applications. Drawn from a broader national survey of geneticists’ and anthropologists’ views on race, in this analysis, we provide a qualitative account of anthropologists’ perspectives. We delve deeper than simply asserting that “race is a social construct.” Instead, we explore the differential ways in which anthropologists describe and interpret how race is constructed. Utilizing the heuristic of constructors, shifters, and reconcilers, we also illustrate the ways in which anthropologists conceptualize their interpretations of race along a broad spectrum as well as what these differential approaches reveal about the ideological and biological consequences of socially defined races, such as racism in general and racialized health disparities in particular. [race concept, social construction, racism, health disparities]Este artículo evalúa el pensamiento antropológico acerca del concepto de raza y sus aplicaciones. Derivado de una encuesta nacional más amplia de las opiniones de genetistas y antropólogos sobre la raza, en este análisis proveemos un reporte cualitativo, de las perspectivas de los antropólogos. Ahondamos más que simplemente afirmar que “la raza es un constructo social”. En cambio, exploramos las formas diferenciales en que los antropólogos describen e interpretan cómo la raza es construida. Utilizando la heurística de constructores, desplazadores, y reconciliadores, también ilustramos las maneras en las que los antropólogos conceptualizan sus interpretaciones de la raza a lo largo de un amplio espectro, y lo que estas aproximaciones diferenciales revelan acerca de las consecuencias ideológicas y biológicas de las razas definidas socialmente, tales como racismo, en general, y las disparidades racializadas en salud, en particular.

  • Orientation and Crafted Bureaucracy: Finding Dignity in Nicaraguan Food
    • Authors: Alex Nading
      Pages: 478 - 490
      Abstract: This article explores how food-safety inspectors (hygienistas) in Nicaragua monitor and certify foodservice workers and facilities. While inspectors are well versed in sanitary law, they describe their job not as law enforcement but as “orientation.” Orientation integrates state regulation with interpersonal exchanges of gifts and jokes, which reinforce unwritten social norms. Such interpersonal exchanges are not simply signs of corruption or governmental incapacity. Rather, orientation is a form of “crafted bureaucracy”: a pragmatic effort to ensure both the quality of food and the quality of governmental encounters. Orientation allows inspectors and food producers to reconcile memories of Nicaragua's revolutionary past with anxieties about the country's more recent integration into a global food economy. While effective surveillance is at stake in orientation, dignity is also at stake. When orientation is successful, the dignity of both bureaucrats and food workers is temporarily affirmed. When orientation fails, their dignity is at risk. [public health, hygiene, medical anthropology, infrastructure, Latin America]Este artículo explora cómo los inspectores de la seguridad de alimentos (higienistas) en Nicaragua monitorean y certifican a los trabajadores y las instalaciones de los servicios de alimentos. Mientras los inspectores son bien versados en las leyes sanitarias, describen su trabajo no cómo de hacer cumplir la ley sino como de “orientación”. La orientación integra la regulación del estado con intercambios interpersonales de regalos y chistes, lo cual refuerza normas sociales no escritas. Tales intercambios interpersonales no son simplemente signos de corrupción o incapacidad gubernamental. Más bien, la orientación es una forma de “burocracia elaborada”: un esfuerzo pragmático para asegurar tanto la calidad de los alimentos como la calidad de los encuentros gubernamentales. La orientación le permite a los inspectores de los productores de alimentos conciliar las memorias del pasado revolucionario de Nicaragua con las ansiedades acerca de la más reciente integración del país en la economía global de alimentos. Mientras la vigilancia efectiva está en juego en la orientación, la dignidad también está en juego. Cuando la orientación es exitosa, la dignidad tanto de burócratas como de trabajadores de alimentos es ratificada temporalmente. Cuando la orientación falla, su dignidad está en riesgo.
