Description: In the 1980s and 1990s, an experimental turn in Anthropology brought literary theory to the analysis and understanding of ethnography as a form of writing. Critiques of the (1986) text, Writing Culture, resulted in a return to the monograph, but in alternate forms, opening a space for post-humanist and interdisciplinary engagements with ethnography. This course explores the different forms and possibilities for writing ethnography. Graduate/Undergraduate Equivalency: ANTH 418. Recommended Prerequisite(s): Upper division coursework in English and/or Anthropology.
