Two decades after the publication of Clifford and Marcus' volumeWriting Culture, this collection provides a fresh and diverse reassessment of the debates that this pioneering volume unleashed. At the same time,Beyond Writing Culturemoves the debate on by embracing the more fundamental challenge as to how to conceptualise the intricate relationship between epistemology and representational practices rather than maintaining the original narrow focus on textual analysis. It thus offers a thought-provoking tapestry of new ideas relevant for scholars not only concerned with 'the ethnographic Other', but with representation in general.
