They are experiences generated by the forms of financialised speculation that have eroded long term planning for the public good since the late 1980-90s. Key mediating institutions such as central banks and bureaucracies have been influenced by epistemes of Post-Keynesian economics that have eroded their capacity to provide us with security of livelihoods and relationships. These have their ethical foundations in Adam Smith’s accounts of moral selfhood, and we can draw on Edward Westermarck’s critical anthropological relativizing of Smith’s ethics in order to critique them. We can also deploy Westermarck’s analyses of moral emotions to push back against emerging epistemes of narrative economics and agent based modelling that are relegitimising financialised speculation within our economic institutions at present. But more significantly perhaps, we should take Westermarck’s approach into the wild of contemporary speculative practice to analyse the moral emotions of care that characterise it. This approach is illustrated though an ethnography of the precarious, uncertain waterscape of the Global Thames. Such ethnographies should lead us to demand new versions of care based on mutuality and solidarity from our public economic institutions. This is especially important in the present moment of the COVID-19 epidemic, which has re-politicised fiscal and monetary policy.<br><br>Keywords: precarity, uncertainty, timescapes, financialisation, speculation, mutuality,<br>solidarity<br><br></p> 2020-04-09T23:48:29+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Laura Bear https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/91423 Introducing Reprises 2020-04-10T11:27:47+03:00 Andrew Graan andrew.graan@helsinki.fi <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> 2020-04-09T23:45:52+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Andrew Graan https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/91424 Reprises: Chris Gregory’s Gifts and Commodities and the frontier 2020-04-10T14:33:30+03:00 Tuomas Tammisto tutam@iki.fi <div class="page" title="Page 26"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>Chris Gregory’s <em>Gifts and Commodities</em> (1982) is widely regarded as a classic in economic anthropology as well as in studies on Melanesia. The work offers a lucid typology and definition of the concepts of ‘gift’ and ‘commodity’based on the tradition of political economy and economic anthropology. It shows how in colonial Papua New Guinea (PNG) gift and commodity economies articulated with each other and—contrary to the assumption of neoclassical economists—expanded simultaneously. In recounting how labour and primary production were commodi ed in colonial PNG, Gregory analyses the development and demise of the plantation economy and utilizes the concept of the ‘labour frontier’ that moved to new areas and eventually closed leading to the crisis of the plantation sector. In this essay I will briefly discuss Gregory’s notion of the ‘labour frontier’, relate it to later theorizations of the concept of ‘frontier’ and discuss how Gregory’s accounts helped me to understand contemporary dynamics of oil palm development in contemporary PNG.</p> </div> </div> </div> 2020-04-09T23:44:41+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Tuomas Tammisto https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/90717 Introduction 2020-04-10T11:21:48+03:00 Carlo Cubero carlo.cubero@gmail.com 2020-04-10T00:23:46+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Carlo Cubero https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/90719 The Passing of Time in a Bell Tower 2020-04-10T11:22:15+03:00 Marcia Mansur mansur.marcia@gmail.com Marina Thomé marina.thome@gmail.com 2020-04-10T00:21:22+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Marcia Mansur, Marina Thomé https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/90721 Scenes from a Transient Home 2020-04-10T11:22:43+03:00 Roger Horn rogerhorn77@gmail.com 2020-04-10T00:17:52+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Roger Horn https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/90722 BETWEEN TIME & THE SCREEN 2020-04-10T11:24:37+03:00 Jeff Silva jeffdanielsilva@gmail.com 2020-04-10T00:02:40+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Jeff Silva https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/90723 She Was to See It Was So 2020-04-10T11:25:04+03:00 Rina Sherman sherman.rina@gmail.com 2020-04-10T00:00:39+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Rina Sherman https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/90734 On death, time, and moving images 2020-04-10T11:26:26+03:00 Isabel Bredenbröker bredenbroeker@em.uni-frankfurt.de 2020-04-09T23:53:12+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Isabel Bredenbröker https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/90724 Time in the Afterlife 2020-04-10T11:23:09+03:00 Eluned Zoë Aiano e.z.aiano@gmail.com Greta Rauleac greta@wildpeararts.com Alesandra Tatić alesandra.tatic@ehess.fr 2020-04-10T00:15:59+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Eluned Zoë Aiano, Greta Rauleac, Alesandra Tatić https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/90725 The Mill 2020-04-10T11:25:31+03:00 Daniel Edward Allen danieledwardallen@gmail.com Patrick Tuubin McGinley patrick@murmerings.com 2020-04-09T23:57:29+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Daniel Edward Allen, Patrick Tuubin McGinley https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/90726 Filming layers of time in an endangered ecosystem 2020-04-10T11:23:44+03:00 Maija Lassila maija.lassila@helsinki.fi 2020-04-10T00:12:11+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Maija Lassila https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/90727 Keeper of the Fire 2020-04-10T11:24:11+03:00 Evan Raymond Spitzer evan.spitzer@gmail.com 2020-04-10T00:05:15+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Evan Raymond Spitzer https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/90728 A River Through Time 2020-04-10T11:25:59+03:00 Virgilio Oliveira vddoliveira@hotmail.com 2020-04-09T23:55:53+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Virgilio Oliveira https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/91425 Introduction 2020-04-10T11:28:42+03:00 Tuomas Tammisto tutam@iki.fi <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> 2020-04-09T23:43:37+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Tuomas Tammisto https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/91426 Spatial Memory and Narration 2020-04-10T11:29:09+03:00 Anna-Leena Siikala info@suomenantropologinenseura.fi <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> 2020-04-09T23:41:56+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Anna-Leena Siikala https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/91429 Western Movements in Non-Western Worlds 2020-04-10T11:29:37+03:00 Edvard Hviding edvard.hviding@uib.no <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> 2020-04-09T23:40:09+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Edvard Hviding https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/91482 Land and Life 2020-04-10T11:31:00+03:00 Thomas Strong thomas.strong@mu.ie <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> 2020-04-09T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Thomas Strong https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/91483 Bryant and Knight, The Anthropology of the Future 2020-04-10T11:30:05+03:00 Roman Urbanowicz roman.urbanowicz@helsinki.fi 2020-04-09T23:36:58+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Roman Urbanowicz https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/85748 Anna Christina Pertierra, Media Anthropology for the Digital Age 2020-04-10T11:21:21+03:00 Johanna Sumiala johanna.sumiala@helsinki.fi 2020-04-10T00:25:49+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Johanna Sumiala https://journal.fi/suomenantropologi/article/view/91484 Pitarch and Kelly eds, The Culture of Invention in the Americas 2020-04-10T11:30:32+03:00 Amy Penfield amy.penfield@bristol.ac.uk 2020-04-09T23:33:33+03:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Amy Penfield
