ANTH2902: Entangled Objects



    This unit introduces students to the anthropology of material culture, focusing on the act of peopling objects – understanding people through the works they create. Frameworks derived from the sub-disciplines of visual anthropology, cultural anthropology, and the anthropology of art provide analytical structure for approaching an understanding of Australian First Nations material culture and art within broader global contexts and conceptualisations. Topics addressed may include art and its relationship to place; cultural creativity and the maintenance of religious knowledge; colour and aesthetics; contemporary art and artefact production; regional perspectives and stylistic values; appropriation, copyright and intellectual property."
