Abstract

This essay by Arnd Schneider builds on his previous research on appropriation (including an oft-cited essay "On appropriation", and a monograph "Appropriation as Practice"). Schneider aims to overcome the impasse created by too meachanistic understandings of appropriation, and discusses the notion of cultural appropration through theoretical concepts of hermeneutics process, and overlay, and exemplifies these with empirical examples from his research in Argentina.
