English Abstract: at the invitation of the conference organisers, this inaugural keynote lecture addressed the debate, which has been particularly lively in Latin America, about the possibilities of constructing alternatives to the hegemonic anthropologies of Europe and the United States. Looking at critiques that argue that the thinking of many of the critics of Northern anthropologies in the World Anthropologies movement have remained imprisoned by its presuppositions and perspectives, the talk considers the epistemological alternatives available to anthropologists and their implications for the wider as well as academic politics of anthropology. It will be published in the CEAS journal (in Spanish) in 2011.
