APE Poster
This workshop hopes to bring together a range of themes, including ideas of sameness and difference, temporality, comparison, and cosmology, drawing on philosophical and religious texts from Chinese, Japanese, and inner Asian traditions to inform anthropological perspectives.  In particular, we are interested in discussing and exploring how and to what extent ideas from these traditions can help problematize ethnographic concerns with cross-cultural translation.
