“Anthropology” has become a popular concept in contemporary cultural studies. Parallel to this, “culture” has emerged as a key notion not only for describing some of the most visible conflicts in the world today but also when we focus on intergroup dynamics in our increasingly global view of human activity. Anthropology, at least the variety called “cultural anthropology,” with some right can claim that culture is central to what it intends to study. As a discipline, anthropology appears to be perfectly suited to examine and do justice to the diversity of the world facing us. Since its “linguistic turn,” anthropology also appears to be well equipped to reflect on the question of to what extent discursive structures shape a culturally specific construction of reality (see Clifford and Marcus 1986; Marcus and Fischer 1986). As a result, the field has become much more aware of its own (conscious or unconscious) biases.
