Technologies are pivotal in the constitution of the human and thus of anthropological knowledge. This is the case in science, which cannot produce a single fact without the use of technologies for substance modification, inscription and imagery. Technologies are also pivotal in everyday life and contribute to shaping ways of interrelating, ways of communicating and ways of imagining and knowing what it is to be human. Under the heading of technology, we investigate the role of materialities, things and technologies in shaping and circulating anthropological knowledge.
