Narrating the Road

Routing Landscape : Ethnographic Studies of Movement and Journey

Auteur :
ARGOUNOVA-LOW, T.

Description :
This article proposes that the term road provides a concept of theoretical value for anthropological discussions of mobility. Based on ethnographic research in two neighbouring settlements in Siberia, I discuss the range of stories indigenous residents offered during our discussions of roads. Their definitions of roads contrast with those used more globally. A hodological approach to the concept of road demonstrates connections among ideas of kinship, movement, nomadism, metaphor and knowledge. Accounts from the social lives of travellers enlarge the possibilities of understanding the relationship between roads and narrative.
