(P078) Working with images in (un-)stable times [VANEASA]
https://nomadit.co.uk/easa/easa2018/conferencesuite.php/panels/6559 Visual anthropologists collaborate in manifold ways with people who are on the move, settling down or staying behind to document and analyse their situation. What are the advantages of working with images in these contexts? What are the experiences and which types of publication are most rewarding?
(P077) Death, mourning, and commemoration through shifting landscapes [VANEASA]
https://nomadit.co.uk/easa/easa2018/conferencesuite.php/panels/6617 We focus on the visual representations of death as well as mourning and commemoration practices in the wake of migrations, displacements, settlements and readjustments following epochal shifts, e.g. wars, socialism, colonialism, and their post-cursors, in communities left behind and receiving ones.
(P074) Negotiating imaginaries: explorations of vernacular audiovisual production
https://nomadit.co.uk/easa/easa2018/conferencesuite.php/panels/6575 This panel will discuss ethnographic possibilities for approaching the relevant fields of "vernacular" audiovisual practices and archives. Focusing on field-based research we will explore how these videos are produced from an economic, political and aesthetic perspective.
(P075) Grace: Unexpected moments in ethnographic films
https://nomadit.co.uk/easa/easa2018/conferencesuite.php/panels/6663 This panel invites anthropologists to explore moments of unexpected wonder in ethnographic film. We wish to understand how such moments are related to the specific modes of cultural critique that can be produced in film.
(P096) Aesthetic Encounters: The Politics Of Moving And (Un)settling Visual Arts, Design And Literature
https://nomadit.co.uk/easa/easa2018/conferencesuite.php/panels/6340 The panel explores the politics of moving and (un)settling visual arts, design and literature. Reflecting encounters of conflicting authority, knowledge and aesthetics ranging from curating to publishing, it also considers impacts on methods and writing genres, market, materiality and globalization.
(P076) The Visual Art of Refugees: expressions of flight and exile [Anthropology of the Middle East and Central Eurasia Network Panel]
https://nomadit.co.uk/easa/easa2018/conferencesuite.php/panels/6333 In this panel we seek anthropological works that introduce and reflect on the rich repertoire of refugees visual productions and art expressions. Panel participants should address how anthropology of visual art intersects with the scholarship of refugees, exile, and border crossing.
(P098) Art and Nativism [Anthropology and the Arts Network]
https://nomadit.co.uk/easa/easa2018/conferencesuite.php/panels/6521 Over the last years, we witnessed a spread of nativist movements across the globe. Reacting to perceived threats of migration and globalisation, they frequently stress nation and belonging. What can we learn from the relations between art, identity, and mobility to think through such movements?
(P067) The Digital Turn: New Directions in Media Anthropology [Media Anthropology Network]
https://nomadit.co.uk/easa/easa2018/conferencesuite.php/panels/6386 This panel recognizes the digital turn as a paradigm shift in the anthropological study of media, and aims to push further the ethnographic knowledge into the role that digital media play in people's everyday life and broader sociopolitical transformations.
(P068) Imaginaries, Media and Tourism
https://nomadit.co.uk/easa/easa2018/conferencesuite.php/panels/6687 This panel seeks research on the new ways tourist imaginaries are constructed and exchanged, with a focus on new forms of ritualized mediation (like the social media) emphasizing increased participation and feedback, in commercial as well as in personal communications.
