[WEBINAR] Sensory Methods/Smartphone Camera in Aging Research

Apologies for cross-posting. I hope this will be of interest for some.

[WEBINAR] Touchscreen: approaches for a sensory ethnography in aging research

EASA Age and Generations Network (AGENET) is 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. The webinar will be facilitated by Dr. Angela Torresan (University of Manchester, Granada Center for Visual Anthropology) and is organized in cooperation with the Visual Anthropology Network of EASA (VANEASA).

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

Participants in the webinar will be asked to work through a pre-recorded lecture on sensory ethnography and ethnographic films. Link to the lecture below. Password: sensoryfilm https://asifilm.myportfolio.com/lecture-5-sensorialexpressive

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.

To make the most of the interactive webinar, please make sure to watch the lecture and the recommended videos before we meet online.

Angela Torresan is a diasporic Brazilian visual anthropologist, born in Rio de Janeiro and living in the UK. She has been teaching visual anthropology at the University of Manchester, Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology, since 2007. Having worked with indigenous peoples in Brazil, Brazilian immigrants in London and Lisbon, and slum gentrification, her current research interest is on processes of securitization and police violence in Rio de Janeiro and So Paulo.

Looking forward to seeing you there, Barbara Pieta and Matthew Lariviere (AGENET Convenors)
