Writing culture : the poetics and politics of ethnography : a School of American Research advanced seminar by James Clifford( Book )

20 editions published between 1986 and 2010 in English and held by 1,228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these new essays, a group of experienced ethnographers, a literary critic, and a historian of anthropology, all known for advanced analytic work on ethnographic writing, place ethnography at the center of a new intersection of social history, interpretive anthropology, travel writing, discourse theory, and textual criticism. The authors analyze classic examples of cultural description, from Goethe and Catlin to Malinowski, Evans-Pritchard, and Le Roy Ladurie, showing the persistence of allegorial patterns and rhetorical tropes. They assess recent experimental trends and explore the functions of orality, ethnicity, and power in ethnographic composition. Writing Culture argues that ethnography is in the midst of a political and epistemological crisis: Western writers no longer portray non-Western peoples with unchallenged authority; the process of cultural representation is now inescapably contingent, historical, and contestable. The essays in this volume help us imagine a fully dialectical ethnography acting powerfully in the postmodern world system. They challenge all writers in the humanities and social sciences to rethink the poetics and politics of cultural invention. -- From https://www.amazon.com (Nov. 14, 2016)

Pueblo Indian painting : tradition and modernism in New Mexico, 1900-1930 by J. J Brody( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the extensive Pueblo painting collections of the School of American Research in Santa Fe, the book traces the lives and examines the achievements of seven key artist: Fred Kabotie and Otis Polelonema of Hopi, Velino Shije Herrera (Ma-Pe-Wi) of Zia, and Awa Tsireh (Alfonso Roybal), Crescencio Martinez (Ta'e), Oqwa Pi (Abel Sanchez), and Tonita Pena (Quah Ah) of San Ildefonso. Brody also explores the role played by the individuals who supported and promoted the Pueblo artists' work, including writers Mary Austin and Alice Corbin Henderson, archaeologist Edgar Lee Hewett, artist and scholar Kenneth M. Chapman, painter John Sloan, and art patrons Mabel Dodge Luhan and Amelia Elizabeth White. Pueblo Indian Painting places this important but underappreciated fine art squarely within the contexts of Pueblo culture and Euro-American modernism, bringing long-overdue recognition to the tradition and its preeminent practitioners as a vital part of American art history

Last hunters, first farmers : new perspectives on the prehistoric transition to agriculture by School of American Research (Santa Fe (N.M.))( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The case studies presented here, ranging from the Far East to the American Southwest, provide a global perspective on contemporary research into the origins of agriculture. Downplaying more traditional explanations of the turn to agriculture, such as the influence of marginal environments and population pressures, the contributors to this volume emphasize instead the importance of the resource-rich areas in which agriculture began, the complex social organizations already in place, the role of sedentism, and, in some locales, the advent of economic intensification and competition. This volume resulted from an advanced seminar held at the School of American Research in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Contributors include Ofer Bar-Yosef, Anne Birgitte Gebauer, Charles Higham, Lawrence H. Keeley, Richard H. Meadow, Deborah M. Pearsall, T. Douglas Price, Bruce D. Smith, Patty Jo Watson, and W.H. Wills
