Interview with an Urban Anthropologist

12/11/2020

An interview with an Urban Anthropologist
 

A Antropologia Urbana é uma área de estudos das humanidades que proporciona um olhar sobre as cidades e nós mesmos a fim de desnaturalizar modos de organização social, observando e analisando comportamentos, rituais e significados.

Ao longo das primeiras aulas deste último bimestre, os alunos dos 8ºs anos discutem expressões artísticas de rua, podendo perceber algumas questões importantes da relação que estabelecemos com a circulação que fazemos nas cidades e seus espaços.

Para enriquecer essa discussão, convidamos o antropólogo urbano Paulo Nogueira, que estuda políticas públicas de saúde na cidade de São Paulo, para apresentar, em língua inglesa, os métodos de observação da Antropologia e as possibilidades que ela propõe para a compreensão dos modos de vida neste espaço particular.

Depois de participarem dessa conversa, os alunos produziram textos descritivos e postaram em seus perfis pessoais do Instagram.

Last Thursday, during my English class, we had a lecture on anthropology with Paulo Nogueira, who works in this area. During this conversation, he explained how this society is an extremely complex system. I understood that the social sciences are divided into sociology, political science and anthropology. Anthropology needs to have a critical thinking, where they understand simple things that happened in society. I loved learning about it and I think it's an incredible job, because they understand simple things that happened in our day.

The event I have attended was a conversation with Paulo, an anthropologist who studies human behavior. In this conversation we talked about: what society is, about science, social science, opinion, anthropology, ethics and critical thinking. All of these issues were discussed in our conversation and all questions were answered properly. It was a very good conversation that taught a lot of new things about anthropology.

Today I had an interview with an anthropologist, and I thought this interview was very good and important because it is important to know about anthropologist and what anthropology is, and in this interview I learned what anthropology is: it is a branch of the social sciences that studies the human being and his origin in a comprehensive way. Through studies on the physical characteristics, culture, language and constructions of the human being, the anthropologist will seek to determine, based on specific social groups, how human beings were formed to the point of becoming what they are in their communities

Yesterday, in our class we had an especial guest: an Anthropologist. He explained what Anthropology is and showed us some questions that the Anthropologists are used to ask to think about people, the society, the relationship among people.
Also he showed us critical thinking, which made me think a lot about what I buy and how I used to think so different about money than nowadays. We discussed and thought a lot about how people and kids act so different in situations.
He explained to us the differences between Social science X opinion and why opinions are not testable. Anthropologists conduct research to answer questions and test hypotheses about human behavior and culture.
He shared some really interesting information about his job and things related to it and how he help the society based on his job.
The class was really focused / based on the difference between other Social science and Urban Anthropology. Before the class, I really thought that Anthropology wasn’t something big and that hadn´t a really impact on the world, but now my opinion has really changed. All the things we know from people, the way they act or live is discovered by the Anthropologists. Most of the science is based on them and the thing that I most liked about this job is that they don’t judge things without parameters.
I liked a lot the class, it was a really different way of teaching but very nice. Hope we have more classes with new guests like that one.

Today, 04.11.20, my classmates and I had a really nice and enlightening conversation with an urban Anthropologist. He told us what anthropology is, the difference between social sciences and urban anthropology, about an fieldwork experience he has with people in Cracolandia and how sad is the situation of some people there, questions anthropologists have to make to have a better vision of the society... From that conversation, I learned how important they are, they study what makes us human, different aspects of human experiences and how human groups lived in the past. I also learned that anthropology involves the study of human society and culture and that’s super cool!

Hello everyone!!! Today I came to talk about a class I had with an anthropologist, yeyy!!! I learned a lot of cool things and I want to share with you all. If you don't know what anthropology is (as I did a few days ago, lamoo 🤣🤣), it is a branch of the social sciences that comprehensively studies human beings and their origins. By studying the physical, cultural, language and structure of human beings, anthropologists seek to determine how humans are formed from specific social groups, in order to define their status in the community. Paulo Nogueira told us a lot about how people live, he emphasized the "why" of many different things. For example, why do people want to buy things so badly? Why do people not have certain attitudes naturally? Ah, he also mentioned our childhood. At that time we asked about 400 questions a day, but as time went by, we started not to care about the "why" of things anymore and stopped asking. And that's his job, asking the "why" of things and trying to find an answer that makes sense.   loved knowing a little bit about this incredible work, and you???

A conversation with Paulo Nogueira, an urban anthropologist
We, students of 8ºB, had a conversation with an urban anthropologist, Paulo Nogueira, who explained for us what and how it works his job, about Social Science, Critical Thinking, Alien Gaze, etc.
Before the meeting, we had some classes about society and street painting, so, having this conversation we could understand more about the theme.
From this conversation, I learned that Society is an extremely complex system, with different people that follow norms, rules and create conflicts.
After all, I understood that Social Science is divided in three groups: Sociology, Political Science and Anthropology. For the Social Sciences "nothing is simple. All is explained, built and understood".
An Urban Anthropologist needs to be "further" of the Ethnocentrism, when people judge other cultures, because they need to study and understand the different cultures of our society. The Anthropologist needs to have Critical Thinking, where they understand, with Data analysis, simple thing that happened and happens in the society.
I think this job is incredible, because they understood and understand simple things that happen in our days with critical thinking. Besides that, I felt fascinated with the job: Urban Anthropology, because Paulo is one and he said that he went to fieldwork for long time, watching people behavior and patterns, even though it is far, and communicating with people to see, really, their patterns and thoughts.Thank you Paulo for that amazing conversation.

We had an incredible conversation with an Urban Anthropologist called Paulo Nogueira. We had a very interesting talk about his job and his working methods. He explained to us that he studies the society's behaviour depending on the place they are located. It's very interesting because he said that he has already been to Caracolândia and he observed society's behaviour in that place.

We students of 8ºC were able to have a conversation with Paulo Nogueira, about anthropology and what an anthropologist does. Anthropology is basically the science that studies human beings and Humanity, and an anthropologist is someone engaged in this study. He also explained the difference between social sciences and opinion. Opinion and common sense are not systematic and not testable. On the other hand, social sciences are based on systematic and critical thinking, precise methods and concepts, data analysis and they are also divided in three parts: Sociology, Political Science and Anthropology. After this chat, I realized Social Sciences and the professionals working in this field are extremely intelligent because they are able to see society and humanity in a different way than others, and on top of that, they can see and understand simple things that most of us can't.

Saiba mais sobre nosso convidado:
Paulo Nogueira estudou Ciências Sociais na USP e vem desenvolvendo sua pesquisa de mestrado na Faculdade de Saúde Pública da mesma instituição. A necessidade de compreender as razões que nos levam a fazer o que fazemos o levou a escolher esse caminho. Por que as pessoas saem de casa, passam o dia no trabalho e voltam para casa, cinco dias por semana, sem questionamentos, naturalizando o modo como nos organizamos e a rotina que seguimos? Preocupado com a palavra natural e suas implicações sociais, Paulo iniciou sua vida acadêmica, na qual foi apresentado à Antropologia Urbana e se apaixonou pela área. Assim como a Antropologia tradicional, com pesquisas focadas no outro, um completo estranho numa organização social desconhecida, este braço procura analisar o outro entre nós.
