Oi Joana,
Veena Das, talvez seja interessante, não te parece? Já não estou certo quanto à qualidade, mas o livro sobre os Ik de Uganda, Colin Turbull, lembra? E, finalmente, a esse respeito, de ambiente, além do Ingold, mas muito em cima do que me parece que você estuda, os textos do Bruce Albert - há alguns deles on line - "O Ouro Canibal", por exemplo - seriam muito interessantes. Se você já conhece tudo isso, me desculpa...

I’m starting now my PHD research about a fisherman’s village in Mauritania’s Atlantic Coast, where there are several conflicts between the population and the National Park that manage the territory since 1976. Mainly the issues and the conflicts between the population and the Park are about land use and the traditional usage versus state laws concerning territory.
As I’m just starting this research I’d like to ask you some advices on bibliography about conflict, some major and important works that I should not miss by working in this area…
Thank you very much in advance for your help.

Indeed, I see this community a little dull. But, in a way, it is difficult to put comments when our day is already full with other things. Anyway, I said I would add a more elaborate follow-up to my anterior post, but, unsurprisingly, I am a little restrained, in time, to search my file books for the texts and authors related. Just needing a little more time.
Anyway, the theory is related to the fact that communities are spreaded across the globe, in territories that are dominated by different majorities. These minorities would fight for their space or ideology. It is, maybe, not very different from what is a civil war, but supported by majorities of other countries, and similar minorities in other countries. Something like this, people X exist in what it is said to be their homeland,country Y, and also, as minorities, in countries A, B, and C. The thing is, the Xs see the persons from A B C as enemies, because of historical, ideological, or whatever other reasons ( it is always a manufactured reason, for contemporary reasons). As so, the X minorities from A B C would recruit susceptible volunteers to fight againts the majority of the country where they live. It may not be related with the political stance between those countries and Y, but a ideological thing. In response, countries A B C would have to respond, in some sort, to the unstable minorities.
It is a theory related with the contemporary times, this thing of the War on Terror, wathever it is, and the Palestinian conflict (a very complex situation). Anyawy, as I said, I must first find my sources and give them another read. Hope my fast explanation isnt too confuse. I know some things may seem far-fetched. As I said, I hope to give a more enlightning explanation somewere in the future.

Just joined this network.
Anthropology of violence and conflict. Seems a good one. Eager to share opinions about it.
About internal displacement. Theres an opinion around (supported by some theorics - I will name them as soon as I can) that it may be the reason and the scenario for the future of conflict and war. The focus will change from the battles between nations, or well delimited frontiers, to the hearth of societies, between the integrated and the non-integrated.
Any opinions?

Voilence and Conflict: I've been pondering for a while now, and written about it on other blogs, the observation of media inspired violence - that is violence and conflict that can be correlated to media sensationalism. Nikos responded to one blog entry his thoughts about it being termed Allophobia, or the fear for the OTHERNESS. It's a practical notion, but somehow I feel there a difference between social and cultural differences and media sensationalism, which can effect any class or race.

CROSSLISTING: I have started a discussion on the Political and Legal Anthropology group page entitled "Are tribes politically important today?" which focuses on the current conflict between the Mohawk and the Canadian government. I could equally have posted it here.

Could someone (Stacie perhaps) explain the image selected for this group. I am not familiar with it, but I would like to be.
