Visual anthropology is a subfield of anthropology that examines the role of visual media, such as photography, film, and digital media, in understanding human societies and cultures. It encompasses various methodologies, such as ethnographic film, photographic analysis and digital storytelling. The field has its origins in the early 20th century and it has played an important role in shaping the way anthropologists study and represent culture.
Ethnic studies is an interdisciplinary field that examines the experiences, perspectives and contributions of different ethnic groups. The field encompasses various subfields such as African American studies, Asian American studies, Latino studies, Native American studies, and more. My focus is on the intersection of ethnicity and popular culture, specifically the representation of ethnic minorities in Chinese ethnic films and its relation to Brazilian ethnic films.
Anthropology of Art
Anthropology of art is a subfield of anthropology that examines the social and cultural aspects of objects and human manifestations considered artistic. This includes but not limited to visual arts, performing arts, and material culture. The field encompasses various methodologies. The goal is to understand how art is produced, consumed, and experienced within the context of social relations, and how it reflects and shapes culture.
