Book Information

   

Title: Anthropology of Color
Subtitle: Interdisciplinary multilevel modeling
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=Z%20137
Description:

The field of color categorization has always been intrinsically multi- and
inter-disciplinary, since its beginnings in the nineteenth century. The
main contribution of this book is to foster a new level of integration
among different approaches to the anthropological study of color. The
editors have put great effort into bringing together research from
anthropology, linguistics, psychology, semiotics, and a variety of other
fields, by promoting the exploration of the different but interacting and
complementary ways in which these various perspectives model the domain of
color experience. By so doing, they significantly promote the emergence of
a coherent field of the anthropology of color.
