The Department of Anthropology at UCL is seeking 2 MPhil/PhD candidates to participate in an exciting ERC funded project “Citizens of Photography: The Camera and the Political Imagination” co-ordinated by Professor Christopher Pinney. Participants will be required to conduct fieldwork in one of the following locations: Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Nigeria, and Nicaragua. “Citizens of Photography” is an empirical anthropological investigation of the relationship between photographic self-representation and different societies’ understanding of what is politically possible. Prolonged ethnographic fieldwork will study how local communities use photography to represent individuals, families, and other identities and explore whether this plays a role in the manner in which people articulate their political hopes and demands. Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Christopher Pinney at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.

Winter is drawing to a close, with spring offering fleeting glimpses of the bright blue skies it holds in store for us. The academic year 2015/16 is at its midpoint, and staff and students are now feeling settled into the year. Our new staff, Dr Emily Woodhouse in Human Ecology and Dr Maria Martinon-Torres in Paleoanthropology, have settled in well. Dr Martinon-Torres immediately set about to create a wonderful opportunity for our students to join a field-camp in Europe’s most important fossil excavation site in Atapuerca, Spain, as part of their coursework, and developments are underway to extend a special relation to paleoanthropological departments and associated field-sites in China. To our delight, our Teaching Fellows are staying with us for a further academic year to the end of 2016/17.
