Visual Anthropology Review

As the journal of the Society for Visual Anthropology, Visual Anthropology Review promotes the discussion of visual studies, broadly conceived. Within its breadth, visual anthropology includes both the study of visual aspects of cultural lives and experience, and the use of visual techniques and technologies in anthropological research, representation and teaching. The journal also highlights innovative forms of ethnographic production and anthropological practice that explore the potentialities of sensory scholarship.
