ANTH 323 - Storied Anthropology

By exploring the notion of humans as storytellers, students will investigate how different people use narratives, and examine the way stories are implicated in, among other things, gender, ritual, morality, and disruption. The course also considers the way anthropologists are the ultimate story-tellers, crafting ethnographies using traditional non-fiction ways and more alternative fictional and poetic means. Students create their storied projects using the Asheville community as our lab, discovering how communities use stories in unexpected ways. Even years Fall.
