    "description": "<p>This article centers on the role of the medium of alphabetic writing in the poetry and scholarship of Margaret Mead (1901&ndash;1978), one of the most prolific writers of 20th-century U.S.-American anthropology. I argue that Mead&rsquo;s writing about and with words is continuous with the Eurocentric cultural evolutionist understanding of phonetic writing as a marker of ultimate human advancement. Mead&rsquo;s demarcation of her subjects&rsquo; alterity by their lack of and failure to use the medium of script extends the process of epistemic colonization well into the 20th century, a process that denies the people that anthropologists study the ability to become involved with the very discourses that cast them in this position of objects of study. I first focus on Mead&rsquo;s largely unexplored poetic writing and then consider the plurimedial work that grew out of her fieldwork in Bali.</p>",
