集团以年为周期运作，在此之后，累积的利息将根据所购股份的价值在成员之间分配。这se `care groups’ as they have come to be known in some districts are wildly popular because they allow people to borrow money at limited rates of interest, particularly useful in helping meet big expenses such as school fees, funeral contributions and hospital costs. They also provide a predictable return on savings, depending on the extent of borrowing within the group. An additional weekly contribution functions as a kind of social insurance for group members who are paid a sum of money should they fall sick or lose a close family member.
Of course, the professor’s narrow definition of language as opposed to a wider concept of communication and the divergences of interpretation are of considerable interest, not least in demonstrating the ways in which the framing of a research object determines the scope of what can be considered findings within a particular scientific paradigm, the kind of narrow cause and effect paradigm we face on our forays into Grantlandia’s uncertain territory. But what struck me about this film was its insight into laboratory life in another era, and the ways in which some things change and some things become institutionalized to the point of being foundational.
自我上次发表在思想之后已经几年了。我正在考虑一种追赶评论。世界如何改变。在改变。包括我们作为学者的特权泡沫可以找到自己。如果我们很幸运。这肯定发生变化。公共资金正在被削减，学术界是，如果不是在动荡中，全球启动动荡。这对人类学等学科具有难以证明影响和相关性的纪律的影响。也许本周英国的动荡向人类学的核心表情和解释提供了一些范围。 Several days of rioting in London have given way to riots in urban centres, including yesterday evening in Manchester city centre and in the adjoining city of Salford a few miles away. Full background to the riots is available on newssites such as the BBC and the Guardian. Youtube provides graphic images of young people breaking into city centre stores and walking out with goods.
本周，在假期阅读之后，我正努力为下周将在英国布里斯托尔举行的欧洲社会人类学家协会(European Association of Social humans Conference)的一个研讨会做报告。这对我来说是一个新事件。虽然我不是一个超级会议者，但我倾向于参加AAA级会议。AAA，无论它有什么不足，都是包容的，对所有人类学家开放的，无论他们的领域是什么，在哪里。我有点不安地看到easa.指出，它存在于欧洲工作或培训的人类学家。为什么限制？在欧洲训练有什么独特的东西吗？是否有欧洲的人类学传统，使纳入其他人培训的人不合适？什么包含在“欧洲”？欧元美国数量吗？其他受欧洲影响的地方？或者相反，在那种关系之间绘制的边界，被分类为以某种方式与欧洲有关的方式？
