   schema:reviewBody ""Interpreting Cultures focuses on how we perceive, know, and interpret culture across disciplinary boundaries; combines theoretical and critical contexts for close readings in culture through discussions of literature, philosophy, history, psychology, and visual arts; and focuses on recognition and interpretation across the disciplines. The method combines textual and contextual work to explore recognition or ways of seeing and knowing - an important aspect of writing, representation, and reading. The volume moves from recognition explicitly to "readings" of texts and images in history, poetry, drama, and film - from The Bible and classical texts to the works of men and women of various backgrounds from Europe and the Americas."--BOOK JACKET." ;
