2017 Visual Research Conference PROGRAM

2017 Visual Research Conference ABSTRACTS

The Visual Research Conference provides an opportunity for professionals and students to dialogue about visually engaged works-in-progress. Substantive presentations include the viewing of visual material as well as ample give-and-take with an actively participating audience. Further discussion takes place during Informal Discussion periods between the interactive formal presentations. Conversations at lunch and dinner create many situations for networking and exchange of ideas. Members and non-members of AAA and SVA are welcome to attend at no charge. The Visual Research Conference is a productive way to meet and interact with others who do anthropological and anthropologically-related visual research.
