ANTH 513 The Poetry of Anthropology (3 credits)

Offered by: Anthropology (Faculty of Arts)

Overview

Anthropology : The seminar addresses the relationship between poetry and anthropology. Considering both the anthropological study of poetry and the poetic dimension of anthropology, the course examines questions of affect, image, language and media but also of narrative, history and politics. Bringing together several domains of anthropological research and theory, the seminar conceives anthropology as a terrain in which social science and poetry cannot be thought apart.
