complicity project is out! / 新書介紹

It's been a long time, but for those of you who wondered what happened with the complicity project, the book Taiwanese Pilgrimage to China: Ritual, Complicity, Community has come out! Because it is expensive, I'm not expecting you to run out and buy a personal copy; but do ask for it at your friendly academic or neighborhood library. Here's some advance praise:

"Taiwanese Pilgrimage to China is symphonic. Its prevailing topic is that of cultural invention. Its leitmotif and the complex phenomenon whose historical ontology is pursues is minjian xinyang--'popular belief.' Its variations circle around a theme of complicity that encompasses Taiwanese pilgrims and their hosts on the mainland; folklore societies and tourists; historians and intellectuals; and, not least, the ethnographer and his interlocutors, consultants, patrons, and clients. Hatfield is a virtuoso of his materials...The task isn't always easy, but Hatfield's engagement with it demonstrates the analytical bounty of keeping always in mind that our lives do not always repeat themselves, that they often face problems not of their own devising, and that the reflexive turn is thus neither a sure sign of self-absorption nor a move confined to the ethnographer alone. The result belongs squarely to the anthropological vanguard. It's a must-read" --James Faubion, Professor of Anthropology, Rice University and author of Shadows and Lights of Waco: Millenarianism Today


我的著作,“台灣進香熱:儀示,共謀,社區” 終於出版了
有時候,快累死,不知道何時這本書會出來
我相信,各位朋友也大概早就聽膩了
也跟我一樣,等了太久
所以12月22日看到新書的粉紫色封面
感覺很複雜
興奮,感恩,驕傲上,還加幾分疲勞
感謝大家的支持




預告中的書評如下:


“台灣進香熱”是個交響曲。。。其主樂調是民間信仰,作者以追隨這個複雜現象的歷史本體論,並介紹主題變奏曲,就是包含台灣香客和中國大陸的主人;民族學協會和旅客;歷史學家和知識份子;人類學家和他的對話者,顧問,貴人,侍從,結盟者,等各種分子的“共謀”。Hatfield博士真是個藝術大士,他的任務不簡單,可是Hatfield針對這些題材,顯出了一些重要的問題:比如我們的人生不會一直重複,他們經常面對他們所未能構想的問題,而因此,當代人類學轉向反思,並非唯我論的表現,也不只是人類學家自己會做得事。這本書屬於人類學的前衛 --James Faubion, Rice 大學人類學系教授
