Keep in mind that "critical perspectives" is possibly a cryptoreference to Critical Theory, not an endorsement that these perspectives are relevant or useful in any way.

    Critical theory maintains that ideology is the principal obstacle to human liberation.
We carry various biases into our work. If Critical Theory tries to make us aware of those biases, then it should be part of the curriculum. From the almost nothing that I know, it seems that Activist Anthropology takes that approach, but then has its own biases.

Do you have some insight into the uses of Critical Theory in various disciplines? I'd like to hear it.
