In exploring the distance between those idealistic aims, imperfect realities, and eventual outcomes associated with professional praxis, explicit attention is given to the complex encounters that both challenge and reinvigorate a sense of meaning in the anthropological endeavor. One of the chapters in this section of the book explores the role of reflexivity in anthropology as activism via the ethically complex challenges of activist anthropology in recounting their effort to study and support resistance in the aftermath of the 2016 US Presidential election. It chronicles ethical challenges encountered while working as activist-anthropologists documenting and, at times, materially participating as protestors in citizen-action events. The chapters remind us to maintain a persistent commitment to anticipatory and reflexive assessment of the relative meanings and potential outcomes from our presence and varied roles in the action-oriented enterprise.
