Technology and political economy

Still more anthropologists study different technological phenomena, systems and contexts, often as part of the interdisciplinary field of science and technology studies (STS) spearheaded by philosophers like Bruno Latour, Annemarie Mol, and Isabel Stengers.

Technology and political economy

At the same time, the late-18th century field of political economy has undergone something of a revival within anthropology (in the works of, say, James Ferguson, Katherine Verdery, and Anna Tsing) in more or less explicit attempts to reinvigorate the discipline's critical potential by combining a systematic and often historical focus on local and global power asymmetries with the analytical rigour of classic socio-economic anthropology.
