Improvisation

Dumit, Joseph, O’Connor, Kevin, Drum, Duskin and McCullough, Sarah. “Improvisation.” Theorizing the Contemporary, Cultural Anthropology website, March 29, 2018. https://culanth.org/fieldsights/1349-improvisation

Improvising is a deep concept in cultural anthropology.

After a year, our short short essay on “Improvisation” is published in a keyword section of Theorizing the Contemporary. The keywords and the short essay came out of Joe Dumit, Kevin O’Connor, Sarah McCullough and I making critical workshops about improvisation and training, and improvisation and devised scores for ethnnography.
