Cultural Anthropology: the Perfect Lens
While the world is increasingly understood through numbers, statistics and data I would like to argue that there is an urgent need for the perspective the anthropologist in specific has to offer. Beyond fieldwork in a country far away, anthropology provides unique and useful research methods, a holistic way of interpreting what is happening around us which is able to understand its incongruences, inconsistencies and subjectivities. In my talk, I will tell how I used my anthropological background in entrepreneurship, consultancy and big data research.
