Encounters and Fabulations at the Edges of the Human
2017, Minnesota University Press > book website
On anthropology, creativity, and becoming other
Stuart McLean claims that anthropology stands to learn most from art and literature. He insists that experiments with language and form are a performative means of exploring alternative possibilities of collective existence, new ways of being human and other than human, and that such experiments must therefore be indispensable to anthropology’s engagement with the contemporary world.
