Summary
Recent insights into the nature of representation and power relations have signaled an important shift in perspective on anthropology: from a fieldwork-based ""science"" of culture to an interpretive activity bound to the discursive and ideological process called ""text-making."" This collection of essays reflects the ongoing cross-fertilization between literary criticism and anthropology. Focusing on texts written or influenced by anthropologists between 1900 and 1945, the work relates current perspectives on anthropology's discursive nature to the literary period known as ""Modernism."".>
