Paper Title: ALTER(ED)NATIVE (II): ON THE NATIVE AS INTERLOCUTOR
Author: GINA ULYSSE (Wesleyan University)   
Date/Time: Sat., 4:15 PM
Co-Author(s): GINA ULYSSE (Wesleyan University) 
Abstract: While the reflexive turn brought into question issues of representation and power or just what anthropologists really ought to do with “their” “natives”, in his work Michel-Rolph Trouillot has consistently asserted the limits of this approach. In Global Transformations: Anthropology and The Modern World, he raised several burning questions regarding the role of the native in anthropological texts. In this paper, I will revisit these questions to consider how Trouillot’s claim that native subjects have never been full interlocutors of their researchers remains a most direct and troubling challenge to the discipline.
