Centre for Visual Anthropology
Centre for Visual Anthropology

The Centre of Visual Anthropology is part of the Department of Anthropology at Goldsmiths and its emergence reflects various research themes in the Department as well as postgraduate programmes involving photography, filmmaking, museum studies and anthropology. The Centre provides a strong focus for current departmental research initiatives in visual theory and practice. These frame western contemporary art as well as other traditions in comparative and historical perspective. The MAVIS (MA in Visual Anthropology) MRes, MPhil/PhD programmes include substantial practice components and the Department is equipped with its own studio facilities.

The Centre is linked with an international community of anthropological filmmakers and photographers and maintains strong connections with documentary and museum activities in London. As well as its academic pursuits, the Centre provides a public forum for screenings, talks and seminars related to all aspects of anthropology, documentary and the visual arts.
