Media Anthropology (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Decisions are being made everywhere for which anthropologists have essential input, and it must be made available. The comfortable privacy of the academy is no longer a refuge. To address the wider society will require new skills, many of which are described in this volume. . . . There are not two audiences--'the profession' and the general public--there are many. Many of the chapters in this volume should be read as first efforts to convey the subcultures of different professional worlds . . . When anthropologists become effective communicators it is because they pay attention to ethnographies of communication and respect the values of their audiences. At a time when more and more decisions require the contributions of anthropologists, no small group of virtuosi or specialists can be sufficient for the task. " From the Foreword by Mary Catherine Bateson"

ALLEN is a practicing media anthropologist, currently completing an anthropology-based workbook on valuing diversity, a textbook for journalist, and an academic curriculum for media anthropologists./e She designed the doctorate in media anthropology at the University of Kansas when she became convinced that the way to get more media anthropoligists on the job was to set a precedent for combining anthropology and journalism in an academic degree program.
