Photography/VA panel at RAI in March

Dear colleagues,

It is with great please that we invite you to submit a paper to the upcoming RAI 2023 Film Festival Conference. The conference will be held 6-10 March 2023 online.

The theme for the Conference is "Visual Anthropology and Speculative Futures" - and our panel (Panel 3) is:

"Visualising the Future: Photography, Digital Sharing, and Alternate Imaginaries".

Abstract: This panel explores the role of photography for understanding alternate futures. It considers the use of historical and contemporary photographs and new forms of digital sharing by actors in diverse ethnographic contexts and their collaborations with anthropologists, museums, and institutions.

We have also attached a longer abstract for your information to this email.

For this stage, we only require you to submit abstracts and titles. Please submit your application online via the RAI portal: The deadline for submissions is October 31st 2022.

We very much look forward to receiving your submissions and plan to develop this panel into an edited volume.

with kind regards,

Richard Fraser, Christian Vium and Peter I Crawford
