Are there anyone, who would like to write a few words on visual anthropology and share on a blog?

Someone Clap For Me is a feature documentary film about the lives and work of contemporary Ugandan poets and hip hop artists. With more than forty-four ethnic groups, each with its own unique language and culture, Uganda has various rich oral traditions, which is still influential in people's lives despite the forces of globalization and urbanization. This film tells the story of how poetry is resurfacing in Uganda in the form of open mic events and hip hop music. http://www.indiegogo.com/SCFM

Fourth Edition of "Contro-Sguardi: International Anthropological Film Festival "

Theme of the year 2012: "For a culture of Work"

Perugia (Italy)

CALL FOR VIDEO, PHOTOS, SOUNDS AND PERFORMANCE

(Deadline: 20 February 2012)

 

The Ass. “Contro-Sguardi”, in collaboration with the Anthropological Section of the Department Man and Environment (Uomo e Territorio) of the University of Perugia (Italy), the city council of Perugia, Informagiovani and the cultural association Macadam, promotes the fourth edition of “Contro-Sguardi: International Anthropological Film Festival”. Theme of the year 2012: “For a culture of work”.

With this call we would like to solicitate the submission of documentary films, fictions, ethnographic, photographic exhibitions, and proposals for theatrical and musical performances related to the topic in question.

Since 2008 the festival, founded to bring together works of anthropological cinema, is open to diverse forms of visual representations. Since last year the festival became biennial, and each edition will concentrate on a specific thematic topic related to socio-cultural dynamics and contemporary societies. Contro-Sguardi 2012 proposes several kinds of differently structured workshops and debate sessions on a broad range of topics related to the “culture of work”. The aim of this theme is to reflect on the crisis of current economic and social models which progressively shrink the spaces of work, especially of young people, with many repercussions for personal and social life. Specifically, with “Culture of Work” we mean the multiplicity of social contexts, anthropological, economic, political and emotional that define work as a practice, knowledge, and existential status of the human being through which it is realized as well for self-determination.


In the awareness of social research, which increasingly requires a dialogical and experimental comparison of new techniques and technologies with their visual productions, “the Festival” opens a Call for video aimed at filmmakers, students, researchers and teachers.

The video participants at the event will be divided into two categories 1) “Competition” divided into “Documentary” and “Fiction”; 2) “Festival”, which will make the text of the regulation Contro-Sguardi festival 2012.

Partecipants at the "Competition" section are eligible for a award and a short list of selected films will be screen at “Festival do Filme Etnografico do Recife 2012” to be held in Recife in Brazil and Contro-Sguardi is twinned.

SENSATE.jpg
a journal for experiments in critical media practice

Sensate is a peer-reviewed, graduate-student-run journal for experiments in critical media practice. It aims to create, present, and critique innovative projects in the arts, humanities, and sciences  and to build on the groundswell of pioneering activities in the digital humanities, scholarly publishing, and innovative media practice to provide a forum for scholarly and artistic experiments not conducive to the printed page.

Sensate is currently accepting: 
1. Submissions for publication (Due: February 8, 2012)
2. Applications (Due: February 1, 2012)

************

1. Call for Submissions:

Exploring new ways to archive, curate, and organize academic multimedia scholarship, Sensate invites submissions of scholarship and art whose work is not conducive to the printed page. We experience the world through many forms and modes of mediation. Sensate seeks to acknowledge these various forms and assert a place for scholarship that engages the viewer/reader/listener on multisensorial and multimodal levels. We encourage submissions that creatively bridge research and media-based work, and aim at going beyond an illustrative relation between text and image towards both solid and innovative modes of scholarship and artistic practice. 

The integration of form and content is crucial to our mission and thus rather than a list of guiding questions we would like to offer a list of possible approaches that demonstrate efforts to unite form and content and to provoke inquiry through creative combinations of exposition and expression.

We are currently seeking work in any of the following categories/disciplines: artistic research, research as sensorial practice, visual anthropology, sensory ethnography, digital humanities, sound studies, multimedia mash-ups, media archeology, digital collections of audio and/or visual materials, digital cartography, performance and its documentation, and critically-inflected art in all media. Thematically, we are especially interested in the humanities and social sciences, but welcome projects in the sciences that entail similar approaches. 

The above guides are not meant to be proscriptive, and we welcome submissions that extend beyond these possibilities. Queries about possible article content as well as submissions from graduate students are also encouraged.

Submissions are due by February 8, 2012 at which time the editors will make initial decisions. Please use the Chicago Manual of Style for all citations. 

Submit via our online submissions form
Contact us with any questions.


2. Call for Applications: 
Sensate is currently accepting applications to be a part of our team in three core areas: Web Design and Development, Editor/Producer, and Media and Outreach. Deadline for applications is February 1st. We are open to applications from individuals based outside of the Boston/Cambridge area. Complete job descriptions can be found on our website.

Submit via our online application form
Contact us with any questions.

today's serge of heritage-based films being produced in the Gulf are working like a retro-active documentation of a people's own culture: http://humanette.blogspot.com/2011/05/gulf-voices-review-in-kalimat...
