In Writing Anthropology, fifty-two anthropologists reflect on scholarly writing as both craft and commitment. These short essays cover a wide range of territory, from ethnography, genre, and the politics of writing to affect, storytelling, authorship, and scholarly responsibility. Anthropological writing is more than just communicating findings: anthropologists write to tell stories that matter, to be accountable to the communities in which they do their research, and to share new insights about the world in ways that might change it for the better. The contributors offer insights into the beauty and the function of language and the joys and pains of writing while giving encouragement to stay at it—to keep writing as the most important way to not only improve one’s writing but to also honor the stories and lessons learned through research. Throughout, they share new thoughts, prompts, and agitations for writing that will stimulate conversations that cut across the humanities. Contributors.

Writing in Anthropology is the ideal, pocket-sized manual for undergraduate students and emerging anthropologists who wish to improve their writing. Anthropology is a rapidly changing, global social science that encompasses a wide range of subfields, including archeology, cultural anthropology, biological/physical anthropology, linguistic anthropology, medical anthropology, and applied anthropology. It is also a growing field. While the economicdownturn might motivate many college students to seek majors they perceive as more practical, the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics projects job growth for anthropologists and archaeologists through 2020 at 21%, which is faster than the average for all other occupations.[1] And more undergraduate students in the United States are majoring in the social sciences and history than ever before: 175,000 students were social science and history majors in 2009-10 (the specific number of anthropology majors is not available).[2] In Canada, another 134,700 undergraduates major in Social and Behavioral Sciences and Law, 4,000 of them in anthropology.[3] Beyond serving their own majors, anthropology departments offer many courses for non-majors; indeed, at many universities it is one of the go-to fields for students seeking to fulfill both general education and W (writing-intensive) course requirements. Writing is central to the work of anthropologists and they employ a wide range of genres, including fieldnotes, ethnographies, journal articles, reviews, reports, essays, personal narratives, and grant proposals. Most anthropology courses-both those in the major and for general education and Wrequirements-include substantial writing assignments. Those assignments often align with the professional genres listed above, but perhaps more are framed as school or apprentice genres-reading responses, summaries, literature reviews, personal reflections, and research papers-designed to helpstudents process course content.While anthropologists appreciate good writing and occasionally focus explicitly on it-each year, for example, the American Anthropological Association holds a workshop on writing for graduate students and professionals-there is no compact, practical writing guide that meets the needs ofundergraduates and beginning graduate students. This Brief Guide aims to address that gap by pursuing four goals: * Introduce the major genres and habits of writing in anthropology.* Explain how reflexivity, expression, and interpretation are vital to the field.* Convey insider strategies for writing and editing in the discipline.* Describe the basic conventions for using sources; and to model a scholarly yet accessible style.

One of the most influential and creative scholars in medical anthropology takes stock of his recent intellectual odysseys in this collection of essays. Arthur Kleinman, an anthropologist and psychiatrist who has studied in Taiwan, China, and North America since 1968, draws upon his bicultural, multidisciplinary background to propose alternative strategies for thinking about how, in the postmodern world, the social and medical relate. Writing at the Margin explores the border between medical and social problems, the boundary between health and social change. Kleinman studies the body as the mediator between individual and collective experience, finding that many health problems—for example the trauma of violence or depression in the course of chronic pain—are less individual medical problems than interpersonal experiences of social suffering. He argues for an ethnographic approach to moral practice in medicine, one that embraces the infrapolitical context of illness, the responses to it, the social institutions relating to it, and the way it is configured in medical ethics. Previously published in various journals, these essays have been revised, updated, and brought together with an introduction, an essay on violence and the politics of post-traumatic stress disorder, and a new chapter that examines the contemporary ethnographic literature of medical anthropology.

It includes discussion of issues such as: * the concept of caste in Indian society * scottish ethnography * how dreams are culturally conceptualised * representations of the family * culture as conservation * gardens, theme parks and the anthropologist in Japan * representation in rural Japan * people's place in the landscape of Northern Australia * representing identity of the New Zealand Maori.

"Humanists and social scientists alike will profit from reflection on the efforts of the contributors to reimagine anthropology in terms, not only of methodology, but also of politics, ethics, and historical relevance. Every discipline in the human and social sciences could use such a book."--Hayden White, author of Metahistory

Using the influential and field-changing Writing Culture as a point of departure, the thirteen essays in Writing Culture and the Life of Anthropology address anthropology's past, present, and future. The contributors, all leading figures in anthropology today, reflect back on the "writing culture" movement of the 1980s, consider its influences on ethnographic research and writing, and debate what counts as ethnography in a post-Writing Culture era. They address questions of ethnographic method, new forms the presentation of research might take, and the anthropologist's role. Exploring themes such as late industrialism, precarity, violence, science and technology, globalization, and the non-human world, this book is essential reading for those looking to understand the current state of anthropology and its possibilities going forward. Contributors. Anne Allison, James Clifford, Michael M.J. Fischer, Kim Fortun, Richard Handler, John L. Jackson, Jr., George E. Marcus, Charles Piot, Hugh Raffles, Danilyn Rutherford, Orin Starn, Kathleen Stewart, Michael Taussig, Kamala Visweswaran

"The explosion of visual media in recent years has generated a wide range of visual and digital technologies which have transformed visual research and analysis. The result is an exciting new interdisciplinary approach of great potential influence for the future of social/cultural anthropology. The author argues that this potential can be harnessed by engaging visual anthropology with its wider contexts, including: the increasing use of visual research methods across the social sciences and humanities ; the growth in popularity of the visual as methodology and object of analysis within mainstream anthropology and applied anthropology ; the growing interest in 'anthropology of the senses' and media anthropology ; the development of new visual technologies that allow anthropologists to work in new ways".--BOOKJACKET.

This is the first anthropological study of writers, writing and contemporary literary culture. Drawing on the flourishing literary scene in Ireland as the basis for her research, Helena Wulff explores the social world of contemporary Irish writers, examining fiction, novels, short stories as well as journalism. Discussing writers such as John Banville, Roddy Doyle, Colm Tóibín, Frank McCourt, Anne Enright, Deirdre Madden, Éilís Ní Dhuibhne, Colum McCann, David Park, and Joseph O ́Connor, Wulff reveals how the making of a writer's career is built on the 'rhythms of writing': long hours of writing in solitude alternate with public events such as book readings and media appearances. Destined to launch a new field of enquiry, Rhythms of Writing is essential reading for students and scholars in anthropology, literary studies, creative writing, cultural studies, and Irish studies.

Extrait de la couverture : ""Here, for the first time, is a book that brings women's writings out of exile to rethink anthropology's purpose at the end of the century. ... As a historical resource, the collection undertakes fresh readings of the work of well-known women anthropologists and also reclaims the writings of women of color for anthropology. As a critical account, it bravely interrogates the politics of authorship. As a creative endeavor, it embraces new Feminist voices of ethnography that challenge prevailing definitions of theory and experimental writing."
