ABOUT THE GUEST:
Dr. Craig Campbell is associate professor of anthropology and Slavic studies at UT Austin. A Canadian, he received his PhD from the University of Alberta. His academic work has most recently been concerned with the realm of ethnographic and documentary images. In his own words, the research and visual experiments that he undertakes explore the possibility for failed, defaced, degraded, manipulated, and damaged photographs to activate interpretive fields typically unacknowledged in conventional ethnographies and histories. This intermedia and aesthetic approach pushes the sensuousness of the world back into an intellectual and scholarly understanding of it. Professor Campbell is the director of the Intermedia Workshop, a laboratory of visual and sensory ethnography. Visit his websites: www.metafactory.ca and http://dam.metafactory.ca/
