Arts-based ethnography in Lesvos, Summer 2019

In collaboration with international partners, University of Agder, Norway, invites students internationally to a Master's (graduate) course in Arts-based ethnography in Lesvos, Greece, 28 July – 11 August 2019.

The contents of the course are exploratory and creative, and inspired by how contemporary artistic practices and ethnographic research are drawing closer. Such as when artists do their art by engaging with local communities, or when anthropologists produce films rather than writings. In the course, Lesvos is approached from the level of everyday experience, from where the broader topics of the place – culture, history, current political dimensions – may emerge in dialogue with the developing student works.  

The course is open to all students with a BA or equivalent in music, visual and performing arts, anthropology, sociology, and related fields. The 'home base' will be UiA's Study Centre Metochi

The initial deadline was 8 March 2019.  An extended deadline is 1 April.

Until then new applicants will be enrolled on a continous basis.

 PS: The MA course is held in English. For students who understand Norwegian, there will be a similar, BA-level course in June 2019: Site-specific expressions, Lesvos: Art – conflict – transformation
