Action & Representation
The anthropological writing process can be challenging. As you engage with peoples both past and present, there is much at stake in how you understand and represent them. Your actions in the field and the ways in which you represent your experiences in writing can be construed as tools of power and privilege. What you write has much larger political and ethical implications. It is vital to be ethical, empathetic, and critical in your writing. Let us explore this through the different stages of the research and writing process.
