Methodologies in Ethnic Studies: American Indians and Ethnography
AMST 207
Spring 2008
Section: 01  

How is knowledge about Native peoples created, consumed, and contested? Who gets to tell the stories of Native people? This course explores these questions through a discussion of ethnography as a methodology. Over the past century, both scholars and their subjects have critiqued ethnography as a method used to understand the other. We will explore how these critiques have affected ethnography, and particularly how the method was affected by the presence of an indigenous population within the United States.
