Media anthropology course in Vienna, May 2009

April 16, 2009

This May I will be teaching an Introduction to Media Anthropology for MA students at the Anthropology Department of the University of Vienna as a Visiting Professor.

The aim of this course is to introduce students to the anthropology of media, a subfield of anthropology that has burgeoned in recent years, attracting a great deal of interdisciplinary interest. The first week is an overview of the history of the subfield, its main research themes and theoretical debates, and emerging areas of investigation. In the second week the focus is on my own media anthropological work, namely on media and nation-building among the Iban of Borneo, internet activism in suburban Malaysia and the uses and limitations of practice theory for the anthropology of media. Each session consists of a lecture followed by a seminar discussion around an assigned text.

If you’re a prospective student on this course and have any questions about the course do feel free to drop me a line through the Contact section above.
