About this product
- DescriptionRights in Rebellion examines the global discourse of human rights and its influence on the local culture, identity, and forms of resistance. Through a multi-sited ethgraphy of various groups in the indigeus communities of Chiapas, Mexico-from paramilitaries to a Zapatista community, an indigeus human rights organization, and the Zapatista Good Governance Councils-the book explores how different groups actively engage with the discourse of rights, adapting it to their own individual subjectivities and goals, and develop new forms of resistance to the neoliberal model and its particular configurations of power. Far from being a traditional community study, this book instead follows the discourse of human rights and indigeus rights through their various manifestations. The author offers a compelling argument for the importance of a critical engagement between the anthropologist and her subjects, passionately making the case for activist research and demonstrating how such an engagement will fortify and enliven academic research.
