Reinventing anthropology by Dell H Hymes( Book )

"Dell Hymes's edited collection of essays, originally published in 1972, brought together a host of leading voices in anthropology passionate about the need to "reinvent" the discipline in which they were all involved. Having determined that the scientific approach fostered by anthropologists earlier in the century disavowed the subjectivity inherent in observation, Hymes and his colleagues called for a more reflexive approach to ethnography. They also sought a solution to the fragmentation that they felt was splintering their field and proposed a progressive political awareness that embraced a liberatory rather than a materialistic end. Knowing that there was no single institutional structure or formulated doctrine the could foster this, they looked within their discipline for answers. Their call to arms: to keep attention focused on the fundamental questions."--Jacket

A landmark volume that revolutionized our understanding of the power and significance of Native stories and storytellers in North America, "In vain I tried to tell you" showcases the methodology and theory of ethnopoetics.

Essays in the history of linguistic anthropology by Dell H Hymes( Book )

23 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and Spanish and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anthropology and linguistics, as historically developing disciplines, have had partly separate roots and traditions. In particular settings and in general, the two disciplines have partly shared, partly differed in the nature of their materials, their favorite types of problem the personalities of their dominant figures, their relations with other disciplines and intellectual current. The two disciplines have also varied in their interrelation with each other and the society about them. Institutional arrangements have reflected the varying degrees of kinship, kithship, and separation. Such relationships themselves form a topic that is central to a history of linguistic anthropology yet marginal to a self-contained history of linguistics or anthropology as either would be conceived by most authors. There exists not only a subject matter for a history of linguistic anthropology, but also a definite need

In Now I Know Only So Far, sociolinguist and ethnopoetic scholar Dell Hymes examines the power and significance of Native North American literatures and how they can best be approached and appreciated.

To truly comprehend the importance and durability of these narratives, one must investigate the ways of thinking expressed in these texts-the cultural sensibilities also deeply affected by storytellers' particular experiences and mastery of form
