"The book features reflections on issues of periodisation, history and geography which are often neglected in these Eurocentrically defined fields and investigates the disciplinary dilemmas now created by their emerging theoretical canons and methodological orthodoxies. It also surveys the potential contribution of art-based discourses to these fields and offers critical perspectives on the emerging 'new media' of our age - defined here, from an anthropological perspective, as the realm of the 'new, the shiny and the symbolic' in which old traditions and new technologies are intertwined."--Jacket." ;
