The King of the World in the Land of the Pygmies

Author: Joan Mark

Publisher: U of Nebraska Press

ISBN: 9780803282506

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 276

View: 3668

Joan Mark offers an interpretive biography of Patrick Tracy Lowell Putnam (1904–53), who spent twenty-five years living among the Bambuti pygmies of the Ituri Forest in what is now Zaire. On the Epulu River he constructed Camp Putnam as a harmonious multiracial community. He modeled his camp on the “dude ranches” of the American West, taking in paying guests while running a medical clinic and occasionally offering legal aid to the local people, and assumed the role of intermediary between locals and visitors, including Colin M. Turnbull, author of the classic Forest People. Mark describes Putnam’s mercurial relations with family and with his African and American wives—and follows him to his sad and violent end. She places Patrick Putnam within the context of three different anthropological traditions and examines his contribution as an expert on pygmies.

Life in Riverfront

A Middle-western Town Seen Through Japanese Eyes

Author: Mariko Fujita,Toshiyuki Sano

Publisher: Wadsworth Publishing Company

ISBN: 9780155064218

Category: History

Page: 164

View: 2507

LIFE IN RIVERFRONT is a unique case study that offers a fresh approach to ethnography because it looks at American culture as seen through the eyes of Japanese anthropologists. Every cultural anthropology student is introduced to papers on the “Nacirema,” a very foreign culture with many daily rituals and a fanaticism for cleanliness, especially as they prepare themselves for work in the morning. In truth, the “nacirema” is American (spelled backwards), and the lessons learned from seeing one’s own culture through the eyes of a ‘stranger’ illuminate the notion of ethnocentrism in a powerful way. While a major task of anthropology is to make the strange familiar and the exotic or enigmatic understandable, another task is to make the familiar strange so that one can see one’s own culture in a new light. This case study accomplishes this and more.
