Violins : Local Meanings, Globalized Sounds Paperback / softback
Part of the Routledge Series for Creative Teaching and Learning in Anthropology series
Violins: Local Meanings, Globalized Sounds examines the violin as an object of meaning in a variety of cultural and historical contexts, and as a vehicle for introducing anthropological issues.
Each chapter highlights concepts as taught in lower-level anthropology courses, and includes teaching and learning tools.
Chapters range from a memoir-like social biography of a single instrument to explorations of violins in relation to technology, labor, the environment, migration, globalization, childhood, cultural understandings of talent and virtuosity, and prestige.
