PALESTINI, Stefano; RAMOS, Claudio y CANALES, Andrea. La producción de conocimiento antropológico social en Chile: Postransición: Discontinuidades del pasado y debilidades presentes. Estud. atacam. [online]. 2010, n.39, pp. 101-120. ISSN 0718-1043. doi: 10.4067/S0718-10432010000100008.
This paper considers the main trends in recent Chilean social anthropological production (2000-2006), with reference to the discipline's history in the country. Analysis of the contents published by Chilean anthropologists during that period allowed for the ability to distinguish and compare their paradigms and audiences, their areas of thematic interest, and their methodological and theoretical frameworks. Results show a large thematic dispersion, major paradigmatic inconsistencies and weaknesses in theoretical and methodological designs, without clear tendencies towards the creation of an applied anthropology or outlining a proximate configuration of otherness. The conclusion explores the possibility that such discontinuities might result from university disruptions during the dictatorship, which cut off the discipline at foundational moments.
