What: Contemporary Ethnography Across the Disciplines Hui
: 17 – 19 November 2010
University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand

Kia ora koutou (Greetings to everyone)!

New Zealand’s first international ethnography hui will give participants the opportunity to meet with like-minded researchers and experience the rich cultural tradition that is Aoteaoroa, New Zealand. 
There is a stunning list of four cutting-edge keynote speakers—Norman K. Denzin, Linda Tuwihai Smith, Elspeth Probyn, and Neil Drew—who will challenge and invigorate delegates, and are looking forward to this exciting time together!

The hui has three key threads;
•    Emerging Methods: traditional, experimental, transgressive forms
•    Practice and Advocacy: doing ethnography on the ground
•    Social Justice and Transformation: theoretical ethnographic visions

The call for participation is now open and you are invited to submit your abstracts online at Presenters’ papers will be considered for a peer-reviewed compilation of four to five presentations per thread.

Introducing the Visual Anthropology Program Directory

November 25, 2009 | By |

The Society for Visual Anthropology’s web committee is pleased to announce the launch of a searchable directory of international programs in visual anthropology on our website. This project was undertaken in response to a clear need for a comprehensive directory of programs and organizations that offer training in visual anthropology and related fields. Programs are listed alphabetically, but results can be filtered according to categories such as Graduate Program, Certificate Program, and so on. The directory can also be searched by country or academic institution for more specific results. Perhaps most significantly, the directory includes an electronic submission form that invites users to contribute information about programs that are not yet included in the directory. We encourage you to visit the directory, add to our listings, and help us to build a rich and current inventory of the many exciting international opportunities for the study and practice of visual anthropology. Visit us also at the AAA in Philadelphia in the Exhibition Hall, Friday December 4th, 3:00-5:00 PM, to to make you contribution to the directory, or to discuss this and other SVA initiatives.
