Illustrating Anthropology

November 12 - November 15

This is a socially distanced in person event.

At this outdoor exhibition explore human lives around the world through comics, drawings, and paintings of anthropological research. From researchers who use illustration as a method to capture their experiences of fieldwork, to those who put pens into the hands of the people they are researching to better understand their world view, this exhibition draws together a wide range of contemporary illustration as research practice. Drawing has long been part of anthropological research and communication, in the form of maps, field-note sketches, and kinship diagrams. But now anthropologists are increasingly recognising the phenomenal story-telling power of narrative-driven illustration as a way to return their research to the communities they work with, and to share their findings far and wide.

Produced with support from the Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland. Curated by Jennifer Cearns and Laura Haapio-Kirk (RAI Public Anthropology Fellows), and Dr Benjamin Dix (Founding Director of PositiveNegatives who produce comics, animations, and podcasts about social and humanitarian issues).

This exhibition will be accompanied by a companion exhibition at Bloc Projects, Sheffield, opening after lockdown in December. Further details available here. You can also view the wider exhibition online here.
