Special Topic: Anthropology and the Humanities


Description

Explores the interactions between anthropology and the humanities, especially literature and visual arts. Topics include anthropology's formation in relation to modernism, primitivism; how these movements have influenced nationalisms; contemporary exercises in genre-bending: ethnographic novels, ethnography as literature, televisual ethnography; the borders between empirical ethnographic and imaginative accounts. Students will consider how and why disciplinary boundaries are formed and transgressed.
