10. Colonialism

For The History of Anthro Thought after reading the section “On Writing Cultures” we do the first three readings in the section “On Colonialism and Anthropological ‘Others'”:

  • Beatrice Medicine, “Learning to Be an Anthropologist and Remaining ‘Native'” (1978)
  • Edward W. Said, “Knowing the Oriental” (1979)
  • Esteban Krotz, “Anthropologies of the South: Their Rise, Their Silencing, Their Characteristics” (1997)

Living Anthropologically means documenting history, interconnection, and power during a time of global transformation. We need to care for others as we attempt to build a world together.
