What is to be an anthropologist today? Not only going to rummaging in those corners of the world that Claude Lévi-Strauss dubbed ‘the dustbins of history,’ but also asking questions on cultural flows and movements crisscrossing the whole planet and our society. Though still using its traditional toolbox, anthropology today take a fresh approach to current issues in which the distinction between ‘us’ and ‘the others’ is increasingly blurred. Issues such as identity or tradition are considered through the prism of history in an attempt at coming up with new and more dynamic keys to the understanding of contemporary societies.
