Panel 05b - The crisis of communication

Convenors: Federica Manfredi (Institute of Social Sciences, Lisbon University), Lucia Portis (University of Turin)

Short abstract: Sometimes there are no words to express what we would like to say. Communication seems to be in crisis when logocentric logic shows its limits. How can anthropologists go beyond words to communicate with research participants? And after fieldwork, can words be enriched by other communicative strategies?
