Abstract

Anthropology of Education: an introduction. What is the anthropology of education, and what does it contribute to the study of educa-tion? Those questions orient this special issue of Educação & Realidade. An-thropologies of education vary around the world (Anderson-Levitt, 2012a). Indeed, as Elsie Rockwell (2002, p. 3) notes, “[…] the analytic categories used to construct ethnographic texts are not autonomous; they are rooted in the societies in which they are first used, and they reflect actual ways of constructing difference in those societies”. Nonetheless, we might identify some fundamental commitments that have evolved over time.
