Aux frontières de la parenté : Un éclairage par les marges

Abstract : What can we learn from the question of margins on kinship? Conversely, how do kinship studies help to inform the relation of margins to the norm? How are understood this notion of margin, or those of edges, boundaries, and limits, across time and geographical spaces? Through five original articles and a double interview, this issue devoted to the “frontiers of kinship” aims to broaden a reflection that has been a point of discussion since the beginning of social anthropology. It sheds light on the diversity of meanings of the notion of margin by describing the practices, representations and standards associated with them. The margin appears first as an object to be observed and described and/or as an analytical tool. It is then questioned as a category of action. Finally, the procedural and temporal dimension of statuses and marginal situations is examined.
