ANTH 5620 - The Middle East in Ethnographic Perspective

Survey of the anthropological literature on the Middle East & N. Africa. Begins historically with traditional writing on the ‘middle east’ and proceeds to critiques of this tradition and attempts at new ways of constructing knowledge of this world region. Readings juxtapose theoretical and descriptive work toward critically appraising modern writers’ success in overcoming the critiques leveled against their predecessors.
