Counter mapping and applied anthropology


I am happy to share with you a recent article I have just published in the Journal Human Organization. This article provides a glimpse into some of the foundational theories, perspectives and intellectual traditions that I draw off of as an applied scholar-practitioner. It has been very important for me over the years to understand the interdisciplinary and applied social justice foundations and intellectual traditions that have meaningfully supported Indigenous peoples in their struggles against racial inequality and political marginalization. In turn, I hope that sharing these stories will help to provide a greater appreciation for these historical nuances and support our current efforts moving forward at reconciling and decolonizng our epistemological traditions; and ultimately, to support our continued efforts at building strong and respectful relationships across these traditions.

You can access the article online. Or download it from our fantastic RRU library database: Siomonn P.

Happy Holidays!
