We are pleased to announce that our departmental magazine Anthropolitan will be upgraded to Anthropolitan 2.0 in the coming weeks. This not only means that there will be an enhanced and comprehensive online presence of the magazine – on a central dedicated website as well as social media platforms – but also that students and staff in the department will have more opportunities to get involved in promoting UCL Anthropology, raising awareness of anthropology globally. We are currently looking for student volunteers to help facilitate this process. It requires passion, some reporting and story-telling skills, as well as basic digital competence to be an editor. And our editorial team will be rewarded for their work.

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.
