Description: This course is designed to develop "slow reading" techniques that allow students to carefully pursue lines of thought that emerge from a text. It is anchored in ethnographic texts and will require students to identify and explore the conceptual genealogies and intellectual conversations in which a text participates. We will explore the required texts and complement them with collectively defined thematics. The seminar will train student in different reading approaches all characterized by slow engagement. Cross-list: ANTH 609. Repeatable for Credit.
