What happens when female-identified artists, audiences, and theorists look back?

ASIAN 655 Ethnography in Asia (A. Cerulli), Advanced, Humanities or Social Science. Instructor provided content: In this seminar we read and discuss ethnography as both method and product. We read ethnographies that focus on specific populations in Asia. These include human groups. But we will also move beyond the anthropological and study ethnographic studies of non-human lifeforms, inter-species interactions, cityscapes, and everyday architectures. Many of the ethnographies we study will be “traditional” written ethnographies. But in the latter part of the semester we will also examine ethnographic films and filmmaking in a variety of Asian contexts. Each week we will look at a different example of ethnography in Asia and explore broad cultural themes like politics, religion, health, economics, and sexuality, discussing the methods involved in doing ethnography generally, and asking why and to what ends scholars have for decades studied and represented Asia through ethnography.
