The writers are doing an MA on Anthropology of Development and Social Transformation (ADST), studying paradigms of global inequality and critical approaches on development. Their work focuses on interdisciplinary and heterogeneous perspectives that engage with an applied and ethnographic approach to social transformation. We question the disciplinary limits and potentials of both Anthropology and Development, critically explore the relation between the two historically and practically. We seek to abolish/transcend/improve current practices and orthodoxy of development to reshape through complex and nuanced understanding. We try to find ways to re center the subaltern in our knowledge production.
