American Anthropologist Magazine
The American Anthropologist Magazine, March 2005, Visual
Anthropology Section is a tribute to anthropologist and ethnographic filmmaker
Jean Rouch (1917– 2004). In nine brief articles, authors discuss the impact of Rouch’s
path breaking career on ethnographic and documentary filmmaking and his contributions
to our knowledge of postcolonial Africa.
The authors demonstrate the significance of his work for the larger discipline of anthropology, and commemorate Rouch with personal reflections of their time working with and learning from him; edited by Faye Ginsburg and Jeff Himpele.
