About the book

In An Expedition Between Innovation Politics and Anthropology, Torbjörn Friberg systematically discusses and analyses several specific political phenomena, which are later drawn together to deliberate the general notion of ideology, power, and possible anthropological escape routes in the context of innovation politics. Drawing on fieldwork in the innovation political world (policy model, mediator company, networks, meetings, conferences, events, documents, observations, and interviews), Friberg reconsiders and develops the work of Laura Nader, Manuel DeLanda, Marilyn Strathern, Martin Holbraad, William Graham Sumner, Pierre Bourdieu, Ghassan Hage, and Eric Wolf. In line with this reasoning, Friberg considers the innovation political world as constituted by a new form of structural power and ideology: a political context in which the anthropological world becomes encapsulated by political processes.
