ANTH 12.21 The Politics of Latin@ Ethnography

Ethnography, both as a set of methodological and textual practices, is central to anthropology. In this course we will explore the development of Latin@ ethnographic traditions by examining tensions emerging out of and in response to ethnographic writing. Latin@ critiques to ethnographic projects that construct Latin@s as homogenous, pathological, and pre-modern have taken various forms. In this course we will consider Latin@ ethnographic, autobiographical, and literary texts that grapple with issues of representation (gender, class, sexuality, race), power, and history to understand the socially constructed nature of Latin@ culture in its varied regional and ethnic contexts.

Distributive and/or World Culture

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
