Course Description

This seminar considers theories of representation current in anthropology, women's studies, and other disciplines as well as a variety of representational practices, especially the representation of collective selves and others in ethnographic narratives, collections, and displays. Among topics to be confronted are the politics and poetics of representation; representation and historical memory; the relationship of representation to objectification and appropriation; postmodern and postcolonial crises of representation; and contemporary experiments in representation.
