Lana Askari: Bridge to Kobane

Discussing her recent fieldwork and ethnographic documentary film Bridge to Kobane (2016), Lana Askari will consider the visual and theoretical approaches to exploring how residents and refugees in Iraqi Kurdistan re-negotiate their future plans through the city space. Can visual research methods capture that which is temporal or invisible, such as imagining the future in times of crisis? The lecture will discuss this question, as well as migration dynamics and ethnographic documentary film approaches in visual anthropology.
