Section Information for Fall 2022
Do you like to write? This is a heavy reading and writing, mixed grad and undergrad course for students who want to create a portfolio of ethnographic writing over the course of the semester. This course will enable you to see (or perhaps taste) the “secret sauce” of how ethnographies are made, by analyzing classic and contemporary works, and by learning to write ethnographically yourself. You will learn how anthropologists draw on a range of data and sources to write ethnographies as well as issues of voice, narration, form, and style – the craft of ethnography. This is a learn by doing course, and by the end of it you will be able to apply a multisensorial awareness in your own writing about people, places, and things. Note that this course meets once a week, and in order to do well in it, you can’t miss more than one course meeting during the semester. This course satisfies the Mason Core Requirement for Social and Behavioral Sciences. Cross listed with ANTH 560-001.
