Urban Photography Summer School 2012, Goldsmiths, University of London

April 10, 2012 | By |

Urban photography summer school 2012
goldsmiths, university of london

Designed for photographers, artists and urbanists whose work addresses notions of urban space and culture the international Summer School provides a highly intensive two week practical and theoretical training in key aspects of urban visual practice. The course aims to offer participants a wide range of relevant skills resulting in the production of a photography portfolio drawn from London’s urban environments combined with a collective final exhibition.

The programme has been developed in collaboration with Urban Encounters and the Centre for Urban and Community Research (CUCR). The course will be taught by tutors from Goldsmith’s Sociology Department and the international MA in Photography and Urban Cultures. The programme draws on the advanced theoretical, research and practical image-making specialisms of key practitioners in the field. Summer School tutors include: Paul Halliday (MA in Photography and Urban Cultures Convener), Beatriz Véliz Argueta (Coordinator/Goldsmiths), Les Back (Goldsmiths), Caroline Knowles (CUCR Director), Mandy Lee Jandrell (Goldsmiths), Peter Coles (Oxford/ Goldsmiths), Alex Rhys-Taylor (Goldsmiths), Manuel Vazquez (Goldsmiths), Michael Wayne Plant (Goldsmiths), Laura Cuch (Goldsmiths) and Jasmine Cheng (Goldsmiths).

The programme will explore how the practice of urban image making informs the development of a reflexive and critical research perspective and will include assignments and guided fieldtrips focusing on (1) urban landscape, (2) street photography and (3) material objects.

Application deadline: June 3rd, 2011

Smithsonian Summer Institute in Museum Anthropology–Call for Applications

January 3, 2012 | By |

The Summer Institute in Museum Anthropology (SIMA) is inviting SVA members to consider applying to the program, which focuses on ethnographic objects in museums. According to SIMA director Candace Greene, “We would love to see more applications from students trained in visual anthropology. It would be exciting to see how methods developed for the analysis of film or photographs could be extended to the study of three-dimensional objects. Interested students who have questions about the program or aren’t sure just how to develop an object-based proposal should get in touch with me at sima@si.edu. I’d be glad to talk.”

The Summer Institute in Museum Anthropology (SIMA) is accepting applications for the summer 2012 program until March 1. SIMA is an intensive four-week training program that teaches graduate students in anthropology and related disciplines how to use museum collections in research, incorporating Smithsonian collections as an integral part of their training. It is based at the Smithsonian Department of Anthropology and includes both classroom training and guided work on individual collection-based research projects. Support from the Cultural Anthropology Program at NSF covers full tuition and living expenses for 12 students each summer. Full information, including application instructions, eligibility, and program dates, is available at: http://anthropology.si.edu/summerinstitute.

If you would like a print copy of the attached poster image to display in your department, please send a mailing address to sima@si.edu and we will be glad to send one.

We encourage those who are attending the AAA annual meeting in Montreal to check out the sessions, roundtables, workshops, films, exhibitions, and meetings that are sponsored by SVA.

Montréal

There’s a lot to be discussed, debated, and discovered about visual anthropology and visual research, and hopefully these sessions and events during the AAA meeting will provide opportunities for us to share thoughts and consider new perspectives.

All SVA sponsored, and invited, panels are listed here.

Everyone, and anyone, interested in visual anthropology and the SVA is welcome to attend our Business Meeting on Friday, November 18 at 1215, which will be immediately followed by a roundtable discussion on visual ethics.

We are also running two workshops on photography and fieldwork, which you can read about and register for here.

Finally, we have put together a general guide to SVA events during the AAA meeting, which can be picked up during the week at the convention center.

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.
