What is Zero Anthropology?

ZERO ANTHROPOLOGY in its most basic sense is a project of decolonization, growing out of a discipline with a long history and a deep epistemological connection to colonialism. The aim is to transform anthropology into something that is neither Eurocentric nor elitist. The inspiration behind this effort was the New World Movement (clickAthis,Athat, andAthe other). It is an attempt to redefine the craft of anthropology into one guided and inspired by decolonization movements and by the struggles of indigenous peoples, Africans in the Americas, and various elements of anarchism. The preferred medium for this effort is the Internet and a mixture of media within the Internet.
