Please join STS and the Anthropology Colloquium series for a poetry and video session and Food for Thought* discussing Professor McLean's book:

In his new book Fictionalizing Anthropology, 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.
