The C.L.R. James Reader by C. L. R James( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

31 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 552 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

Observational cinema : anthropology, film, and the exploration of social life by Anna Grimshaw( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once hailed as a radical breakthrough in documentary and ethnographic filmmaking, observational cinema has been criticized for a supposedly detached camera that objectifies and dehumanizes the subjects of its gaze. Anna Grimshaw and Amanda Ravetz provide the first critical history and in-depth appraisal of this movement, examining key works, filmmakers, and theorists, from André Bazin and the Italian neorealists, to American documentary films of the 1960s, to extended discussions of the ethnographic films of Herb Di Gioia, David Hancock, and David MacDougall. The authors make a new case for the importance of observational work in an emerging experimental anthropology, arguing that this medium exemplifies a nontextual anthropology that is both analytically rigorous and epistemologically challenging
Visualizing anthropology by Anna Grimshaw( Book )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 236 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."--BOOK JACKET
Special delivery : the letters of C.L.R. James to Constance Webb, 1939-1948 by C. L. R James( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 224 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

RAI Film Festival 2017( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every day, carrying the simplest of tools, diggers across coastal Maine set out at low tide to dig for clams on the wide mud flats that stretch far into the bay. It is backbreaking work. But it has an unusual beauty that emanates from the ebb and flow of the tide, the shifts of light and wind, the skill and rhythm of digging, and the sound and texture of deep, viscous mud. At Low Tide explores the choreography of digging through a portrait of a man who lives and works according to the tide. In its focus on pattern, movement and repetition, the film evokes the sensory richness and poetic dimensions of clam digging, offering a new perspective on contemporary American culture
A chair : in six parts( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A poem about a chair. In 1960, Bill Coperthwaite bought 300 acres of wilderness in Machiasport, Maine. Influenced by the poetry of Emily Dickinson and by the back to the land movement of Scott and Helen Nearing, Bill Coperthwaite dedicated himself to what he called "a handmade life." Until his death in 2013, Bill Coperthwaite lived and worked in the forest. He was a builder of yurts, and a maker of spoons, bowls and chairs. A Chair: in six parts, a meditation on time and process, explores the rhythm, movement and poetry of dwelling in the world

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the third of the four films that make up the series, Mr. Coperthwaite: A Life in the Maine Woods. This beautifully shot and edited film follows Bill Coperthwaite as he prepares for winter in the woods. Wrestling with a large felled tree amidst its vast tangle of branches, Bill slowly and methodically breaks it down into expertly sorted piles of wood. He spends his days alone, tackling the great trunk with a cross-cut saw that once belonged to Scott Nearing. He works and rests, the gentle shifts of breeze and light hinting at the passage of time and the changing of seasons. In an unexpected moment, Bill reflects on the age of the tree and his own age. It serves as a poignant reminder of the span of life and the inseparability of man and nature.
