Anthropology Through Time

Anthropology Through Time: Rupturing Boundaries of Culture

Anthropologists have been contesting and complicating the notion of culture since the 19th century. By chronologically depicting pivotal

anthropologists and their theories in photographic and textual form, our project captures moments at which conventional or dominant notions of

culture were ruptured. Each portrait embodies the theoretical essence of its corresponding theorist, while each accompanying still life alludes to

the dominant discourse of ‘culture’ at the time. Each caption summarizes the theoretical proposition at hand in a configuration that echoes its

respective imagery. For example, Hurston’s caption is reminiscent of a spyglass, for she peers through the “spyglass of anthropology.” The

following imagery expresses classical theories of anthropology through “joyful subversion” and engages with anthropological thought through a

creative, non-Western and non-patriarchal canon.
