Abstract

After relocating to a Chinese context, anthropology inevitably went through a process of domestication: successive initiatives have been undertaken to make the discipline Chinese. This article aims to examine the aspirations and experiments of domesticating anthropology in China by looking at several moments of its development including the emerging globally focused Chinese anthropology. The objective here is not to retrace the history of the discipline in China in detail, but to identify specific moments while placing them within the broader context of a modern division of intellectual labour and power relations.
