Jason, this was initially part of my discussant comments on the "Politics: Anthropology of, Anthropology as" panel the day before. It was in response to Lori Allen's citing of Simon Critchley's statement that "the first political emotion" is anger. It is part now of a talk that I am turning into an article---Tibet, Ferguson, Gaza: On Political Crisis and Anthropological Responsibility (that very much draws on a history of such scholarship in the discipline, as well as the current moment). I'm not surprised it also came up on our Anthropology and Storytelling panel. What a powerful and productive two hours we all had together!
