Desnaturalizar el despojo: una etnografía crítica en la era del resurgimiento del imperialismo

  • Gillian Hart Department of Geography, University of California, Berkeley

Resumen

Las etnografías críticas y los métodos de comparación relacionales proporcionan herramientas para reconfigurar los estudios de área de modo que estos puedan retar las visiones imperiales del mundo. También arrojan luces sobre procesos de constitución, conexión y desconexión —que están cargados de poder— e identifican deslizamientos, aperturas, contradicciones y posibles alianzas. Las concepciones lefebvrianas sobre la producción del espacio son cruciales para este proyecto. Este ensayo desarrolla estos argumentos a la vez que interviene en las discusiones recientes sobre la denominada “acumulación primitiva” como un proceso continuo. Con base en investigaciones sobre las conexiones entre Sudáfrica y el este de Asia, y mediante comparaciones relacionales, destaca el carácter racializado de ciertas formas de despojo y su relevancia para las luchas que están ocurriendo en Sudáfrica. Estos ejemplos resaltan la importancia de la etnografía crítica y la comparación relacional para “avanzar hacia lo concreto”, en el sentido de conceptos concretos que sean adecuados para la complejidad con la que
se está tratando de lidiar.
