Links between Anthropology and Literature have been diverse and long-lived. Moreover, with the rise of 'post-modern critique' and debates over the politics of authorship and over the persuasiveness and properties of representation, issues linking these two genres of writing have, for some time at least, assumed central importance in the discipline. This module will review many of these issues, the problems raised and solutions suggested.
