Feminist StudiesFMST 117 Post Zora Interventions: Art, Activism and Anthropology

This experimental course situates the pioneer and controversial ethnographer, novelist, and playwright Zora Neale Hurston as an avant-garde. Analyzing her influence on academics, activists and artists, students consider the complex ways anthropology functions as material (from the textual to the visual), a source of both inspiration and refusal. In the process of exploration, students critically ponder what constitutes an intervention in academia, on the streets, or in artistic settings?
