Acerca de


Insightful and persuasive...a valuable contribution to several disciplines.--Native American and Indigenous Studies An important and significant new contribution to the scholarship of Native American studies, and also to anthropology, American history, photography, and the study of visual culture." --ARLIS/NA Reviews [Zamir's] analysis is often novel and compelling.--Journal of American History Bold and original.--Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute Brilliant analyses. . . . A more nuanced pathway to reassessing Curtis's monumental achievement . . . in the history of intercultural interpretation.--Dialectical Anthropology Insightful and persuasive a valuable contribution to several disciplines.--Native American and Indigenous Studies " Bold and original.--"Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute" Zamir has established a new analytical benchmark for Curtis's photo-ethnography.--"Dialectical Anthropology" "Zamir has established a new analytical benchmark for Curtis's photo-ethnography.--"Dialectical Anthropology" "The major strength of this book resides in its close readings of a selection of photogravures of Native Americans, mostly portraits, made by Edward S. Curtis for the monumental publication "The North American Indian". Zamir reveals and emphasizes the role of Native figures--not just as informants, but as subjects--in the creation and meaning of these images. The book will surely appeal to specialists in Native American studies, visual culture, American studies, anthropology, history, and related fields. It should also appeal to a broader, more general readership of ethically-minded citizens, especially to the many readers interested in Native Americans.--Mick Gidley, University of Leeds "Well researched, convincingly argued, and elegantly written, "The Gift of the Face" constitutes a remarkable achievement and a highly significant contribution to Native American studies and visual cultural studies."--Shari Huhndorf, University of California, Berkeley
