ANTH 457 - Seminar: Graphic Anthropology

Semester Offered: First Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4SS, CD

This seminar course explores past contributions of and future possibilities for sketching and drawing as anthropological methods. How can sketches complement field notes? How might graphic ethnographies complement scholarly books and articles? How do anthropologists across the “four-fields” engage graphic methods in different ways? What ethical issues might accompany the increasing use of graphic methods? While students do not need any special background in or skill with drawing, participation in this course will involve active experimentation with graphic means of observing, participating in, and analyzing interactions, and of circulating anthropological insights.
