Arts-based Ethnography in Lesvos

  • June 2018

Kristiansand, Norway (2016)

I am pleased to be invited by the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Agder (Kristiansand, Norway) as a mentor/ supervisor to the Master’s course Arts-based Ethnography taking place in Lesvos (Greece) between 19 June to 1 July.

The aim of the course is for the participants to produce a site-specific work in the realm between artistic practice and ethnographic research inspired by how, as an example, site-related artistic practice often moves towards ethnographic or anthropological research, and ethnographic researchers are also moving toward contemporary artistic practice through forms of expression, applied scholarship or activism. In addition to the on-site part of the course, before and after the stay in Lesvos, the participants take part in an online course activities with presentations, supervision and assignments.

Other mentors/ facilitators include:

Jennie Gubner, Indiana University Bloomington, US (music & film ethnography)
Panayotis Panopoulos (Anthropologist & artist, University of the Aegean, Lesvos)
Tormod W. Anundsen, University of Agder (connections between ethnographic & artistic research)
