ANTR-4102 Seminario Representacion y Conocimiento Etnografico

In the contemporaneous panorama of social and cultural anthropology, there is a vein of reflective thought on the production itself of anthropological knowledge. The objective of this seminar is to examine this controversy based on ethnographic material. It is about considering ethnographic fact a fundamental part of anthropological knowledge, particularly as regards Colombian anthropological thought. This consideration, based on Colombian ethnographic experience, attempts to provide specific elements for students to carry out their own ethnographies (or their continuation). This means that the seminar has a dual perspective: An analytical or critical perspective and a proactive or operational perspective.
