Die heutige Welt ist von zunehmenden Austauschbeziehungen zwischen Gesellschaften der -alten Welt- und der -neuen Welt- oder auch -dritten Welt- gepragt; fur diese Komplexitat wird das Konzept des "Tout-Monde" - der All-Welt - von Edouard Glissant aufgegriffen. Gibt es einen "Tout-Monde" auf der Ebene kommunikativ-sprachlicher und kultureller Beschreibungsmodelle? In Europa und in den USA sind interdisziplinare Forschungen zur Interkulturalitat entwickelt worden. Zugleich gibt es Tendenzen, ursprunglich an ehemalige Kolonialgesellschaften gebundene Modelle auch anderswo zur Anwendung zu bringen. Hierfur stehen Konzepte wie Hybridisierung und Kreolisierung. Dieser Band fragt nach Herkunft, Gemeinsamkeiten und Kontrasten dieser Ansatze sowie nach ihrer Fruchtbarkeit bei der Umsetzung in verschiedenen Disziplinen."

In both professional and academic fields, there is increasing interest in the way in which white-collar workers engage with institutions and networks which are complex social constructions. Covering a wide variety of countries and types of organization, this volume examines the diverse ways in which individuals' ethnic, gender, corporate and professional identities interact. This book brings together fields often viewed in isolation: ethnographies of groups traditionally studied by anthropologists in new organisational contexts, and examinations of the role of identity in corporate life, opening up new perspectives on central areas of contemporary human activity. It will be of great interest to those concerned with practical management of institutions, as well as those of us who find ourselves working within them.

"Through the idea of the 'extended field', this volume examines current issues in fieldwork and ethnography and provides new insights into the problems of ethnographic knowledge construction. It is a text for new fieldworkers, established researchers and those looking for material to support modules on these issues. Nine anthropologists reflect on their experiential processes of knowing by considering how different aspects of fieldwork and the writing-up process informed their accounts. Drawing on both theory and empirical material, this volume actively engages with the dilemmas faced by fieldworkers and relates them to current debates and the notion of crisis in academe, whilst illustrating the complexities of knowing how to know by probing material from different historical periods and various regions."--BOOK JACKET.
