What has anthropology taught you?
A friend of mine sent me a link to the website of the Norwegian migration researcher Jørgen Carling http://www.dragoeiro.com It has an unusually nice design, but what I’m even more impressed about is the section “Research findings". Here, he lists selected findings from his own research on migration in a very simple but convincing manner like
“It is misleading to say that the ‘total effect’ of labour emigration is either positive or negative for a given country.”
“We are living in an era of involuntary immobility”
followed by a short explanation and link to the relevant publication.
I haven’t seen something like this on other websites, it looks like a great way to present one’s own research - and it might be even a good exercise for the reasearcher: What have I learnt through my research? What has anthropology taught me? Yes, what would you answer?
