This panel critically explores the different notions of collaboration, multimodality, and co-curation in the research field, as well as the dissemination of anthropological knowledge as a critical anthropological pedagogy.
As a critical practice for studying social phenomena and the human condition, anthropology has been intrinsically narrative- and story-driven; predominantly logocentric and text-based. The increasing acknowledgment of the embodied essence of our perception of being-in-the-world, and consequently, the belief in the corporeality of the research field, seeks to break the linguistic confinement and pave the way for using hybrid and multi-sensory media. Striving to establish more-than-text modes of narrative and representation, this approach has granted new perspectives to anthropological research but also to disseminate anthropological knowledge to academic as well as non-academic audiences in novel forms.
Multimodal and collaborative anthropological approaches and more recently also co-curatorial practices have been at the centre of recent shifts for more inclusive public, critical, and pedagogical knowledge production. While multimodality points to the different modes and experiences of various media beyond dualistic text/image distinctions in both research, research communication and education, collaborative practices have been at the core of ethical, democratising and decolonial anthropological approaches. Bringing them together with critical curatorial strategies as part of the anthropological research endeavour opens new avenues to think through research and dissemination in relation to exhibition venues like the museum.
This panel invites works, especially those with practice-based approaches, that aim to critically explore different notions of collaboration, multimodality, and co-curation in the research field, as well as the dissemination of anthropological knowledge. It aims to explore more inclusive and less asymmetrical research that opens anthropological strands to the public and creates a public pedagogical circumstance.
