him! *grin*
First, I'd like to thank everyone for the input I got regarding my
class presentation on Clifford Geertz. Thanks in part to you folks, I ended
up with an A on it, for 20% of my grade! Specifically, I'd like to thank
John McCreery, Dave Jacobson, Mike Lieber, Eric Silverman, Jeff Cohen,
Janette Wilson and Trish Clay, all of who gave me some really helpful advice.
Thanks, guys!
Second, I wanted to send out a request for new input. Now that the
presentation is done, I have to get to work on the accompanying paper *grin*
Anyway, what I'd like to do is have a section of contemporary opinion of
Clifford Geertz as an anthropologist. What I'm looking for specifically
are remarks on his ethnography, theory, writing style and/or commentary. I'd
appreciate it if you have anything to contribute if you'd include your name,
position and organization, so I can attribute everything.
Thanks is advance! I've been telling everyone in the Anthro department
at URI what a great help you folks have been to a novice like me!
