ANTHR 4418 - Writing Ethnography: Theory, Genre and Practice


(GB) (CA-AS)      
Spring. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Co-meets with ANTHR 7418 .

L. Ramberg.

What are the poetics and politics of ethnographic writing? How is this genre, what many would call the signature of cultural anthropology, distinct from other modes of scholarly writing? What are its possibilities, limits and effects? In this course we will read classic and experimental ethnographies and undertake exercises in ethnographic writing as a means to investigate ethnography as epistemology, genre and craft.
