Genealogy, kinship, genetics: Maintaining distances?

  • Pier Giorgio Solinas Università di Siena

Abstract

Drawing on examples from Indian ethnography and not only, this paper seeks to identify, ranging from research and representations of geneticists and local images, to systematize the idea of descent on three different levels: the first about the field of relationships between people and groups, families, genealogies; the second about the terms and kinship relations, ie the raw material of visible genealogies; the third about the genetic text and the classes that it generates.
