Knowing From the Inside: Anthropology, Art, Architecture and Design

Project Details


Knowing From the Inside: Anthropology, Art, Architecture and Design (or for short, KFI) was a 5-year project funded by a European Research Council Advanced Grant held by Professor Tim Ingold. It commenced in June 2013, and ran until May 2018.

Knowing From the Inside sought to reconfigure the relation between practices of inquiry in the human sciences and the forms of knowledge to which they give rise. Its fundamental premise was that knowledge is not created through an encounter between minds furnished with concepts and theories, and a material world already populated with objects, but grows from the crucible of our practical and observational engagement with the world around us. Knowledge, we contended, comes from thinking with, from and through beings and things, not just about them. Our overall aim was to show how research underpinned by this premise could make a difference to the sustainability of environmental relations and to the well-being that depends on it.
