Maja MUHIC, Contemporary anthropological questions: Insightful reflections on current social shifts


Abstract: This paper focuses on the latest trends in cultural anthropology. In recent years, anthropology has become a socially engaged discipline, grappling with the problems of the new “globalized” world. The paper dialogically engages with some of anthropology’s most recent works, which reflect upon social changes, and ways of being human by examining the intersections of techno-science with administration, neoliberalism, and governance. It also critically looks at the latest shifts happening in higher education and the decline of the importance of humanities with a focus on the Republic of Macedonia.

Keywords: techno-science; governance; crisis of humanities; crisis in education; authenticity; engaged anthropology; humanities.
