ANTHR 2721 - [Anthropological Representation: Ethnographies of Latino Culture]

(crosslisted) AMST 2721 , LSP 2721  
(CA-AS)      
Fall. Next offered 2017-2018. 3 credits.

V. Santiago-Irizarry.

Representation is basic to anthropology. In translating cultures, anthropologists produce authoritative representations of and about other people’s lives. In this course, we will examine, with a critical eye, the production of representations about U.S. Latino cultures as these are embodied in anthropological texts. Issues to be explored include the relation between the ethnographer and the people s/he is studying, the contexts in which ethnographic texts are produced, and the way they may position different cultural groups within the larger national context.
