Mediajourneys: Looking at People, Looking for People


  • Ruth Behar,

  • Marcy Brink-Danan


Ruth Behar's oeuvre consistently deals with the issue of looking as an anthropological concern. This interview explores the way anthropology in general, and Behar in particular, looks at and for people. The conversation explores topics of primary interest to this journal's readers, including the advantages and disadvantages of different representational strategies, the relationships of various media to anthropological subjects and to each other, and issues of pedagogy, authorship, and artistic choices.
