EXPERIMENTAL APPROACHES TO ETHNOGRAPHIC RESEARCH
The Multimedia Anthropology Lab at University College London (UCL MAL) is proud to
present an online conference and virtual exhibition Multimedia Encounters: Experimental Approaches to Ethnographic Research taking place Tuesday 12th to Friday 15th of January. Follow links below to access recorded panels.
How are ethnographic encounters with alterity mediated and transformed by multimedia technologies? Drawing on both material culture studies and the ontological turn, UCL MAL mobilises a global conversation on the concepts, forms and media through which we produce and share knowledge.
The conference draws together anthropologists, artists, sound designers, coders, VR/AR producers among other experimental practitioners to initiate a global conversation on experimental research formats and multimedia knowledge. Conference panels will offer stimulating debates with over 30 speakers - including sound artist Chris Watson. This selection of radical academic thinkers and cutting-edge practitioners invite us to think critically about multimedia forms of research, questioning divisions between art and science and pushing the boundaries of knowledge.
