Call for: Panel and paper proposals, conference on anthropology and photography

The Royal Anthropological Institute is pleased to announce that a conference, Anthropology and Photography, will take place at the British Museum, Clore Centre, in conjunction with the museum’s Anthropology Library and Research Centre. The aim of the Conference is to stimulate an international discussion on the place, role and future of photography. Panel proposals are therefore welcome from any branch of anthropology.

We welcome contributions from researchers and practitioners working in museums, academia, media, the arts and anyone who is engaged with historical or contemporary production and use of images.

Panels can draw upon (but are not limited to) the following themes:

The use of photography across anthropological disciplines

The changing place of photography in museums and exhibitions

Photography and globalisation

Photography, film and fine art

Revisiting and re-contextualising archival images

Photography and public engagement

Ethics, copyright, access and distribution of images

Technological innovation and its impact

Visual method and photo theory

The call for panels opens on 1 August 2013 and closes on 31 October 2013.
