Phoebe Gloeckner Speaks at Anthropology & History Symposium


Stamps Associate Professor Phoebe Gloeckner is a guest speaker at the 2016 Anthropology and History Symposium, (Re)Presenting Stories from the Field and the Archive. Gloeckner’s presentation will take place at 11:15 am on Friday, April 22.

Stories have the power to disrupt, shift and provoke. Stories compel.

Stories — and the ways both scholars and our interlocutors tell them — are essential to anthropologists and historians (and artists!). They are among the data we work with in field and archival work. Recounting the narratives we gather often requires filtering, manipulating, and fragmenting the material, employing formal skills and collective efforts. 

The 2016 Anthropology and History Symposium will explore stories and multiple ways to (re)present them. In an effort to critically engage with narratives of anthro-historical work, scholars will present their stories in what they might consider an unaltered, raw format.
