Craig Campbell : Ethnographer artist

Craig Campbell is Assistant Professor of Cultural Forms and Anthropology at the University of Texas, Austin.  He received his PhD in Sociology (Cultural Theory) from the University of Alberta in 2009.  Craig is one of the founders of the Ethnographic Terminalia curatorial collective (www.ethnographicterminalia.org).  His research is concerned with modes of descriptions with a special focus on ethnographic and documentary images. In particular he has been exploring the possibility for ignored, overlooked, failed, defaced, degraded, manipulated, and damaged images to activate interpretive fields typically unacknowledged in conventional ethnographies and histories.  This intermedia and aesthetic approach pushes the sensuousness of the world back into an intellectual and scholarly understanding of it.
