(Webinar) Touchscreen: Approaches for a Sensory Ethnography

[PAST EVENT] EASA Age and Generations Network (AGENET) and Visual Anthropology Network of EASA (VANEASA) are pleased to invite you for a webinar on the use of audio-visual sensory methods (through a smartphone camera) in ethnographic research on aging and the life course. It will be facilitated by Dr. Angela Torresan, University of Manchester, Granada Center for Visual Anthropology. 

Drawing on the discussion provided in the lecture, we will look at how one can use a smartphone camera to engage with an exploratory audio-visual sensorial approach to research on ageing. As such, this webinar focuses mostly on methodology, but with a theoretical attention to the role of the senses, both as a subject matter and a mode of making knowledge, in our ethnographic research.

Date: Jun 30, 2021 16:00 London (BST)/17:00 Berlin (CEST), 11:00 New York (DST), on Zoom
The webinar is free and open to all, but the registration is required under the link below:https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJAlfuuspz0jGNyfFmP_J8V6L0WgVtouPFVC
