Critical Commentary

Abstract: Since anthropology seems premised largely on the importance of knowledge that is constructed and shared, it seems only ethical that the value of that knowledge should first and foremost be assessed by people who generated it, who coproduced it. Curating an experience creates a micromarket that is potentially responsible to a local audience. That is one of the most exciting parts of our project. It puts ideas in a form that is legible to publics without an intermediate step.
