Anthropology, Fieldwork and Photography: "Seeing through" the Collections at the Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology

Anita Herle (University of Cambridge)

Drawing on recent collaborative research projects with the rich photographic collections at MAA, this session will consider photography as a site of social interaction, the particular circumstances of creation, the visual economy of circulation, as well as the way that images are selectively mobilized today by families and cultural descendants of the people and places depicted. A central concern is what is being made visible and to whom, both within and beyond the frame.



Open to all.  No registration required
