The Connaught Global Challenge Initiative: “Entangled Worlds: Sovereignty, Sanctities and Soil” addresses the coeval nature of issues relating to new populisms, sanctity and soil, changing nature of theopolitical charisma, and the sacralization of new and old forms of sovereignty.
Visual ethnography is particularly suited to “thinking” through some of these themes, albeit through a different lens. We invite Dr. Roger Canals Vilageliu, University of Barcelona, to methodologically explore how to carry out visual anthropology – particularly, film – in contexts of religion and when critiquing the secular/religious divide. This three-hour workshop will introduce and discuss key themes in visual anthropology, its methodology, and will be also informed by Dr. Canals Vilageliu’s work on the cult of María Lionza in Venezuela.
