Writing Resistance, Revisiting Ruptures

Most ethnographies of resistance are found to be around the issues of ethnicity and indigeneity. This article attempts to interrogate this encounter by analysing two ethnographic works - In the Belly of the River by Amita Baviskar and Of Revelation and Revolution by Jean and John Comaroff - which consciously attempt to move away from the earlier traditions of "studying" cultures that were often seen as timeless on the one hand, and as predecessors of modern civilisation within a linear evolutionary paradigm, on the other. Both of them attempt, instead, to historicise cultures and identities.
