ANTHR 2721 - [Anthropological Representations: Ethnographies on Latino Culture]

(crosslisted) LSP 2721  
Fall. Next offered 2018-2019. 4 credits. Student option grading.

V. Santiago-Irizarry

Representation is basic to anthropology. In the process of translating societies and cultures, anthropologists produce authoritative accounts about other people, their lives, and their communities. We will here examine, from a critical perspective, the production of representations on Latino culture[s] 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, the ways these texts may contribute to the position that different cultural groups have within the United States, and the implications emanating from these processes.
