American Power

Roger Myerson & Marhsall Sahlins — “Reconceptualizing the Question: Intervention Strategies”

April 24, 2009

A presentation and discussion with University of Chicago Professors Roger Myerson, Department of Economics & Marshall Sahlins, Department of Anthropology.

Roger Myerson: "A Field Manual for the Cradle of Civilization"

Marshall Sahlins: "On the Anthropology of the Counterinsurgency Field Manual"

Part of the April 2009 conference on "Reconsidering American Power". In the STSS Workshop's 2008 conference on "Anthropology and Global Counterinsurgency", participants analyzed and interrogated new relations among American power, geopolitics, military interventions and anthropological practice. This year, the issues were broadened to include the future of American power and the social sciences generally. "Reconsidering American Power" asks a difficult, timely question: In the face of two ongoing hot wars and after a potentially transformative election, what now?

Organized by The Workshop on Science, Technology, Society, and the State, and the Center for International Studies.
