The ethnographer's eye : ways of seeing in anthropology by Anna Grimshaw( Book )

29 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Grimshaw's exploration of the role of vision within modern anthropology engages with current debates about ocularcentrism, investigating the relationship between vision and knowledge in ethnographic enquiry. Using John Berger's notion of 'ways of seeing', the author argues that vision operates differently as a technique and theory of knowledge within the discipline. Vision is foregrounded in the work of contemporary ethnographers, focusing more general questions about technique and epistemology in ethnographic enquiry, whether image-based media are used or not."--Jacket

Special delivery : the letters of C.L.R. James to Constance Webb, 1939-1948 by C. L. R James( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"C. L.R. James's correspondence with Constance Webb, the young American woman who eventually became his wife, began in 1939 and lasted a decade. Passionate, poetic, and wonderfully readable, the letters chart an extraordinary friendship and gripping period in the life of C.L.R. James as a revolutionary activist in America." "Beginning with James's first letters to Webb (written whilst visiting Trotsky in Coyoacan, Mexico) and ending with his letters from 'exile' in Nevada, the correspondence is simultaneously an intimate record of a romantic relationship and a profound meditation on politics, art, and American civilization. Whether debating with Richard Wright in New York, lecturing in Los Angeles, or singing arias aboard ship in the Gulf of Mexico, James is always a superb traveling companion: quick to draw historical and political lessons from everyday life, and always able to illuminate experience through art." "Something powerful was unlocked by James's experience of America. And at the centre of this experience was his attempt to bridge the gap of race, age, and gender between himself and Constance Webb. Already celebrated while unpublished, these letters form one of the major resources on James's life and thought during his American period. But they also tell a story as intellectually stimulating as it is affecting."--Jacket
Visualizing anthropology by Anna Grimshaw( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Questions of vision and knowledge are central to debates about the world in which we live. Developing new analytical approaches toward ways of seeing is a key challenge facing those working across a wide range of disciplines. How can visuality be understood on its own terms rather than by means of established textual frameworks? Visualizing Anthropology takes up this challenge. Bringing together a range of perspectives anchored in practice, the book maps experiments in the forms and techniques of visual enquiry. The origins of this collection lie in visual anthropology.
