About the Event
Hosting four panelists working with different communities of the Middle East, this webinar will unravel diverse uses of creative and experimental methods in anthropology beyond the conventional modes of academic writing – such as poetry, graphic novel and documentary. Through examples from the panelists’ works, the webinar will explicate how using such methods facilitate and complicate ethnographic knowledge production. It will also provide insights to people interested in utilizing creative methods in their analytical thinking.
