Announcing: The Advanced Laboratory for Visual Anthropology, CSU Chico

October 4, 2010 | By |

A major grant from the National Science Foundation  is funding the creation of the Advanced Laboratory for Visual Anthropology in the Department of Anthropology at California State University, Chico.  Researchers in the new facility will use Red Digital Still Motion Picture Cameras to create documentaries spanning the breadth of the discipline of anthropology.  This technology is in use in major Hollywood productions, but so far has not been adopted by anthropologists. 

We are seeking graduate students to form the first cohort to use this revolutionary new equipment.  Students will receive a four-fields MA in Anthropology, but will make a film in lieu of a thesis.  Please visit the Department of Anthropology website at http://www.csuchico.edu/anth/programs/index.shtml for more information and to apply.  For further inquiries please contact Professor Brian Brazeal at bcbrazeal@csuchico.edu or 530-898-6192.

Research Fellowship in Museum Anthropology

October 29, 2009 | By |

Application Deadline: 15 Dec. 2009

The Bard Graduate Center and the American Museum of Natural History
announce a Research Fellowship in Museum Anthropology. The fellowship provides
support to a postdoctoral investigator to carry out a specific project over
a two-year period. The program is designed to advance the training of the
participant by having her/him pursue a project in association with a curator
in the Division of Anthropology at the American Museum of Natural History
(AMNH). The Fellow will also be expected to teach one graduate-level course
per year at the Bard Graduate Center (BGC). The Fellow will thus be in joint
residence at BGC and AMNH, beginning in September 2010 and continuing
through June 2012. The fellowship includes free housing.

A major purpose of the BGC-AMNH Research Fellowship in Museum Anthropology
is to promote mutual scholarly interest and interaction among fellows, BGC
faculty and students, and AMNH staff members. Candidates for Research Fellow
are judged primarily on their research abilities and experience, and on the
merits and scope of the proposed research.
