Voicing the ancestors: Readings in memory of George Stocking

Journal Article (Review;Journal)

In this Forum, four anthropologists have chosen an "ancestral" figure to give voice to. Anthropologists' ancestors are generally teachers, mentors, or, less proximally, canonized scholars of prior generations. Anthropologists draw on their ancestors for theoretical wisdom and practical guidance. Yet ancestors are not always shared broadly across our discipline, and they can easily fall into oblivion. Giving voice to them, publicly, allows each contributor to comment on an important scholar and invites readers to renew their acquaintance with disciplinary ghosts who still have much to teach us.
