About this blog
In the course of the German Association for Cultural and Social Anthropology’s conference of the same name from September 29-October 2, 2019, this blog searches for empirical descriptions and analyses of what social actors in certain situations and contexts set as ‘non-negotiable‘ – whether for strategic reasons, based on ideological convictions, or out of life-preserving necessity. The blog aims to critically discuss current processes in which the potentially unlimited dynamics of social negotiation are brought to an end by acts of closure or opened to new negotiations after a temporary closure.
Like all boasblogs, the blog “The End of Negotiations!?“, in the sense of a public anthropology, aims to make scientific findings accessible to a broader public in order to make a critical-constructive contribution to current social debates and to help shape social relations at various political, social and everyday levels.
