Funded MPhil/PhD Opportunities
Publication date: 26 July 2016
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.
