Pigs and Persons in the Philippines. Human-Animal Entanglements in Ifugao Rituals
4. jun. 2014
The Ifugao of Northern Luzon, the Philippines, are famous for their extensive system of irrigated rice terraces, and previous anthropological accounts of the Ifugao have stressed their immense importance for social life. This book, written by Jon Henrik Ziegler Remme, attempts to ‘go against the grain’ and approach Ifugao society through an often overlooked element, namely their pigs.
Experimental Film and Anthropology
30. mai. 2014
This book which is edited by Arnd Schneider and Caterina Pasqualino urges a new dialogue between two seemingly separate fields. The book explores the practical and theoretical challenges arising from experimental film for anthropology, and vice versa, through a number of contact zones: trance, emotions and the senses, materiality and time, non-narrative content and montage. Experimental film and cinema are understood in this book as broad, inclusive categories covering many technical formats and historical traditions, to investigate the potential for new common practices. Arnd Schneider who has co-written the introduction also contributed the chapter "Stills that Move: Photofilm and Anthropology".
