      CALL FOR PAPERS:
      VISUAL ANTHROPOLOGY OF THE SENSES?

      a proposed panel for the
      American Anthropological Association Annual Meetings
      100 Years of Anthropology: The Transformation of a Discipline
      Washington DC, November 28-December 2, 2001


      The use of performance, pictorial media and moving images in
      ethnographic work has increased in popularity in recent years,
      while a recognized body of theories concerning the systematic
      analysis of visual culture has also come into existence. This
      panel will use this base as a point of departure, to explore
      the question: can there be media making in visual anthropology
      that incorporates bodily or sensuous forms of scholarship?  Can
      the making of moving images with anthropological intent be
      anything other than occularcentric? Does it privilege sight
      (because it is so obviously imaged) above the other senses?
      Does it have to?  Recently scholars have speculated on the
      applicability of theories from the anthropology of performance
      to visual anthropology, both in the analysis and representation
      of `spectacles' of both ritual and/or `art' as well as the
      performativity of everyday life.  What can these theories as
      well as those of scholars who are concerned with experiential or
      'sensuous' scholarship bring to visual anthropology?  How can
      the ways that performance is incorporated into visual
      anthropology be applied to the making of visual texts (films/
      videos)?  How does anthropology of the body fit into this?  Or
      the work of queer and gender theorists?  Papers for this panel
      should examine the intersections between visual anthropology,
      anthropology of performance, and the anthropology of the body.
      In these papers, session participants will suggest ways that
      anthropological theory can be explored through various visual
      mediums, and in doing so, analyze the relationship between
      language, the senses and visually based theory. Graduate
      students and recent Ph.D recipients are strongly encourage to
      submit proposals.
