Title: Art, Science, or Politics? The Crisis in Hunter-Gatherer Studies
Authors: Lee, Richard B.
Keywords: Hunter-gatherers
Hunter-gatherer studies
Issue Date: Mar-1992
Publisher: American Anthropologist
Citation: Lee, R.B. (March 1992). Art, science, or politics? The crisis in hunter-gatherer studies. American Anthropologist 94(1), 31-54.
Abstract: In the complex history of hunter-gatherer studies, several overlapping and at times antagonistic discourses can be discerned. However, one critique has emerged that would render all hunter-gatherer discourses irrelevant and do away with the concept altogether. The paper explores the poststructuralist roots of this "revisionism" and then argues why the concept of hunter-gatherer continues to be politically relevant and empirically valid. However, if they are to fulfill their promise of illuminating an increasingly fragmented and alienating modernity, hunter-gatherer studies will have to become more attuned to issues of politics, history, context, and reflexivity.
