2. GSN'ER MARVIN COHODAS ANNOUNCES NEW ON-LINE PUBLICATION ON BAILE DE LA CONQUISTA
 
I have completed a manuscript on the Guatemalan Dance of the Conquest. The study involves both an historical analysis, especially through analysis of the text, and ethnographic analysis of the dance in the K'iche' municipios of Cunén, Joyabaj, Momostenango, and San Cristóbal Totonicapán. The section on contemporary dance is also available in Spanish translation.I have made this analysis  available for free download at the following website: http://baile-conquista.sites.olt.ubc.ca/ The manuscript is separated into 20 chapters so that it will be easy to revise. So if you read it and have suggestions for revisions, please send them to me. Marv Cohodas   mcohodas@mail.ubc.ca

Abstract

Informed by the snail's pace of the Zapatista “caracol” process and the Slow Food movement, this contribution explores the liberatory potential of “slow ethnography” over two decades in the Maya lowlands of Guatemala and Belize, oriented from a “hut with a view”. Against the unbearable lightness of multi-sited imaginaries, I describe the intellectual and personal discoveries gained from following Laura Nader's framework for “studying up, down and sideways”. This article makes a case for how the slowness of research possessed by place might serve as a critical “as a point of reference” (in Zapatista terms) on an ever-quickening planet. The analysis also suggests how slower, more ethical and reciprocal processes of research might help heal anthropology's longstanding disciplinary entanglements and conflicts with native peoples. http://coa.sagepub.com/content/35/3/301?etoc
