Edith Turner And The Anthropology of Collective Joy

In these days of social, political, and ecological gloom, it’s easy to become cynical. Everyday we are bombarded with news of racial prejudice, religious intolerance, economic inequality and xenophobia. Donald Trump, a man who is unabashedly racist, homophobic and misogynistic is about to become the Republican Party’s nominee for President of the United States. In the UK, a majority of British voters have opted to leave the European Union. Many of them appear to be unaware of the economic and social consequences of their vote. 

As scholars it’s hard to know how to confront these dismal events in the world. How do we discuss ongoing problems that threaten to shred the global social fabric and bring widespread social, political and economic chaos. 

Is there a measure of well being to be found in the world? Is there space for wonder? 

In cynical moments when I need to ponder the wonders of human existence, I think about the work of Edith Turner, a monumental anthropologist who died on June 18th of this year, one day after her 95th birthday. In all of her work Edie, as her friends, students, and colleagues knew her, succeeded in describing what is special about the human condition. 

In 1985 Edie Turner returned to Zambia in South Central Africa to continue the ethnographic research she had shared with her husband, the late Victor Turner, one of the great anthropologists of the 20th century. During a curing ceremony among the Ndembu people, the religious rituals of whom the Turners described in a series of classic books, Edie learned about the importance of understanding Ndembu rituals in Ndembu terms. In her book Experiencing Ritual Edie wrote about opening herself to the sensibilities of the Ndembu world. Witnessing that curing ceremony Edie wrote about being able to see...” a six-inch blob — a kind of plasma or gray spherical ghost — emerging from the patient’s back”. The spiritual extraction of what the Ndembu call Ihamba, a dead hunter’s tooth, healed the Ndembu patient. For us, the passage takes us to the edge of the possible and challenges our sense of reality. It compels us to think deeply about the human condition, about what is important in our lives and in our work. 

Following the publication of Experiencing Ritual in 1992, when Edie was in her early seventies, she began to study healing rituals among a variety of peoples, publishing important works on the reality of spirits, on the nature of spirituality and on healers among the Iñupiat people in Northern Alaska. 

For me her most important ideas are found in her final book Communitas: The Anthropology of Collective Joy, which she published in 2011 when she was in her early nineties. In the first paragraph of this book, Edie deftly tackled the unenviable task of defining something as elusive as communitas, a silent and sudden sense of social bonding. She wrote: 

[...] The characteristics of communitas show it to be almost beyond strict definition, with almost endless variations. Communitas often appears unexpectedly. It has to do with a sense felt by a group of people when their life together takes on full meaning....Communitas can only be conveyed through stories.... 

Here Edie tapped into something extraordinarily significant: the power of narrative to connect writers to readers, the power of narrative, in the words of the psychologist Jerome Bruner, to construct realities — a narrative construction of a reality that is irreducible to formulae to or a set of abstract theoretical principles. 

There is something about narrative that can convey to readers the mystery of the ineffable or the wonder of, as Edie would put it, collective joy. Even so, anthropologists, like most scholars, are trained to tell and not to show, to denote rather to evoke. Edie’s work compels us to wonder what is missed through such academic socialization. As teachers and writers many of us are hesitant to take thematic or representational risks. In this domain Edie’s life work is a beacon of inspirational light. Evoking the specter of communitas, Edie wrote: 

[...] This book [...] tackles communitas, togetherness itself, taking the reader to the edge of the precipice of knowledge — and beyond, over the barrier of the scientists’ analysis and into experience itself. Light dawns on what the real thing is, and we feel lucky it exists. Then we can make discoveries. 

The stories of communitas that Edie recounted in her writing not only defined a place of togetherness but also the nebulous space between things. As such communitas shows us the way to an arena in which we can sometimes experience a rare feeling: collective joy. 

When I discuss Edie’s life work, I don’t think about reviews, or critiques, or citations. Unlike most academic work, Edie Turner’s contributions to anthropology and to humanistic scholarship provide us a framework for thinking about well-being-in-the-world. Her clear prose and conceptual daring have inspired many of us to stretch our imagination and extend our sensibilities to the outer limits of the possible. In so doing, Edie’s work moves us to explore the unknown, the indefinable, the indeterminate, a path that is not always easy to follow. Despite the difficulties we encounter on this path, Edie Turner has shown us a way forward. In her life and work she marshaled the courage to explore the powerful indeterminacies that you find in the silence between two notes of music, or in the creative incomprehension you find between two cultures, or in the conceptual turbulence you find between spirit and reality. Indeed, Edie Turner’s celebration of social life guides us to a place that has deepened our professional and personal well-being-in-the world. 

In the end, Edie’s notion of collective joy is a tonic for contemporary social life. It is a model for reaching our students and extending to the public our important insights about social life. Her joy of living the anthropological life is a model for being well in the world — a model that can bring us a measure of comfort as we confront the imponderables of our turbulent times.

What the Most Resilient People Have in Common

What the Most Resilient People Have in Common | Un monde nouveau :: A New World | Scoop.it

The truth is that life can be tough, business can be hard-hitting and success comes with challenges. What separates those who can hold their own and keep going in times of adversity is a cluster of habits that center on resilience.

 

Resilience means developing a strong solid level of mental toughness. We aren't born with it--it's a habit you develop, a skill you learn. And it's absolutely essential.

 

Here are four core habits of the most resilient people:

 

1. They're connected to their emotions.
Resilient people understand their emotions and how to manage them. Some people say that suppressing what you feel is the best approach when you're going through tough times, but it's just the opposite--suppressing your emotions can backfire. People who are highly anxious or have a lot on their minds tend to struggle with unwanted thoughts. Resilient people are connected to their emotions and self-aware, which gives them more control.

 

2. They don't listen to negative voices in their heads.
Resilient people are able to get past the negativity and dig deeper to discover what's triggering it. Then instead of taking it to heart, they're able to turn it  into positive intentions. Resilient people are optimistic and believe in their own strength and ability to overcome any problems. In a crisis, a resilient person will be positive, open and willing to find the solution. They will not be dwelling on the problem but looking forward to the future solutions that should be considered.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, September 6, 5:44 AM
The most resilient people have a few things in common. The first most common thing is that they are not control freaks, and so they might let go of things that they can't control, and they move on. The second most common thing shared by them is that they are at peace with their innner selves. To know more, read the article curated in this post!

The Phenomenon of Humans of New York: Storytelling Ethics?

The Phenomenon of Humans of New York: Storytelling Ethics? | Un monde nouveau :: A New World | Scoop.it

"This raises the question: is it exploitative for someone to become popular at the hands of sometimes-marginalized groups? I will touch upon Stanton’s systems of compensation and charity, but that does not take away from the general unsettling nature of sharing one’s stories, particularly for marginalized individuals, and not having a direct, uniform source of tangible compensation for every person."

Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 27, 6:37 PM

I ran across this article today and it immediately caught my eye because the topic is so rarely discussed. I know that the Humans Of New York project is wildly popular, and yet the author of this posts asks some very important questions about the storytelling going on.

 

Emily Jenab asks questions like, are these stories a way to evoke empathy and ethical questions without responsibility? Is there is an exploitative tone to his work? By presenting raw emotions, and unsettling images, is this enough?

 

Hmmm. Choosing subjects and the lense you capture their experiences through is an ethical choice. Folklorists have long wrestled with experiences of showcasing a traditional musician at a festival, let's say, where fame and notoriety follow. This isn't always a happy ending. 

 

Storytellers find ourselves in similar around the stories we share of people. Jenab finally asks if there's an ethical guide to storytelling. Yes, there is. You can download the best practices for story work here. It's called the Story Work Best Practices Guide For Leaders. I hope it helps in some way.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 14, 2015 2:44 PM

This is a good post that covers lots of ground. I like that the author, Mydee Lasquite, starts out by emphasizing the need to prepare your story before doing anything else. What does she mean by preparation? Understanding your motivations, along with knowing a lot about your audience.


Lasquite continues with a through list. She's writing for content marketers (aren't we all one of those?) but anyone can benefit from her advice. When she gets to archetypes, however, of the 5 listed only 1 is an archetype. The rest are plot lines/story types. The best resource for using archetypes in marketing/branding is Margaret Mark and Carol Pearson's book "The Outlaw and the Hero: Building Extraordinary Brands Through The Power of Archetypes".


Scroll through the Lasquite's list and pick up some tips in each. Since it's the end of the year, it's a perfect time to read this and start honing/upgrading your stories for 2016.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 28, 2:51 PM

Victoria Ward and Thaler Pekar are two story practitioners I keep tabs on. I find their deep thinking and the work they do very refreshing.

 

Here Victoria shares about the recent dinner conversation between her and Thaler. Thaler talked about her work collecting stories for a philanthropic organization that is winding down its work, the emotions she encounters, and how she sets up the interview environment to make it all work. 

 

I've encountered the exact same situations, whether it's in a corporation, community, or nonprofit setting. Training in ethnography, interviewing, and kinesics has led me to the same practices shared here. I say this so you, too, can read the article and know best how to proceed when evoking/collecting stories from others.

 

And don't miss the gem in the second to the last paragraph! I'm adding this notion into my presentations today.

 

Thank you Victoria and Thaler for sharing your wisdom!
