Creativity and Cultural Improvisation by Elizabeth Hallam
Book DescriptionThere is no prepared script for social and cultural life. People work it out as they go along. Creativity and Cultural Improvisation casts fresh, anthropological eyes on the cultural sites of creativity that form part of our social matrix. The book explores the ways creative agency is attributed in the graphic and performing arts and in intellectual property law. It shows how the sources of creativity are embedded in social, political and religious institutions, examines the relationship between creativity and the perception and passage of time, and reviews the creativity and improvisational quality of anthropological scholarship itself. Individual essays examine how the concept of creativity has changed in the history of modern social theory, and question its applicability as a term of cross-cultural analysis. The contributors highlight the collaborative and political dimensions of creativity and thus challenge the idea that creativity arises only from individual talent and expression.

Books By Author Elizabeth Hallam
Anatomy Museum, Hardback (May 2015)
Elizabeth Hallam investigates the anatomy museum and how it reveals the fascination and fears that surround the dead body in Western societies. It also examines such topics as artistic works that employ images of dead bodies, and the debate over the disposal of corpses.
Making and Growing, Hardback (March 2014)
Making and Growing brings together the latest work in the fields of anthropology and material culture studies to explore the differences - and the relation - between making things and growing things, and between things that are made and things that grow. Though the former are often regarded as artefacts and the latter as organisms.
