LIVING ANTHROPOLOGY: VISUAL ETHNOGRAPHY COMPETITION AND ETHNO-POETRY

For this year's competition, parallel to the AAS conference https://aasconf.org/2022/ we’re asking you to reflect poetically and visually on what it means to be Living Anthropology. How do we live as anthropologists? How can we create anthropology that is vibrant and alive? What is it like being an anthropologist? What is your anthropological perspective? What is anthropology like seen through your lens? What does anthropology in 2022 looks and feel like? Show us!
