Anthropology, photography and the field of memory

Pitt Rivers Museum Research Seminar in Visual, Material and Museum Anthropology

Michaelmas Term 2017

Fridays, 1pm-2.30pm, Lecture Theatre, Pitt Rivers Museum (entry off Robinson Close)

Convened by Marcus Banks.


Patti Langton explores her recent engagement with the ethnography and photography of what is now the South Sudan, where she did challenging anthropological fieldwork in 1979 and 1980. Illustrated with photographs, objects and music, she considers how they became part of a public archive and resource on the PRM website.
