ANTH 303A 001 Ethnography of Special Areas

(Writing Ethnography-Anthropology and Fiction)

3 credits, Term 2, Mon Wed, 12:00 -13:30, Geography 212

 

Fiction: Something that is invented or untrue. Origin: Late Middle English (in the sense invented statement): via Old French from Latin fictio(n-), from fingere form, contrive. Compare with feign and figment (OED).

How does anthropology work with cultural, political and scholarly notions of truth? What kinds of ethical and epistemological situations inspire anthropologists to create works of fiction? This course explores various intersections of Anthropology and fiction that will familiarize students with debates about representation, imagination and realism. Course readings draw from a diverse range of ethnographic contexts and eras of disciplinary knowledge production. Through readings, discussions, presentations and lectures, we will look at folklore, mythology, testimonials, the ethnographic novel and plays. What does fiction do that other genres don’t?
