3.1 Writing for Cultural Anthropology

3.1 Writing for Cultural Anthropology (October 2013)

Cultural anthropology attends to patterns in human activity using an array of theories, methods, and practices. Issue 3.1, Writing for Cultural Anthropology, features writing from Eastern Michigan University's Anthropology Program as distinguished among five frameworks: cultural reflexivity, assessing theoretical perspectives, mini-ethnographies, interdisciplinarity, and crossing cultures.

This photo of a "Tabu" beer glass was taken by Dr. Cerroni-Long at the Tahiti International Airport (May 2012), as documentation of "tourist art" appropriation of anthropological concepts--a process studied in the Interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate Program in Cultural Museum Studies (CMS) she established and coordinates.

The two Guest Editors of this EM-Journal issue are Dr. Cerroni-Long, Professor of Anthropology, and Dr. Gabriel, Lecturer in Anthropology in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminology.
