Congratulations to Jacqueline Hazen! Her video production film, “Island to Island” will be on screen at the New York Botanical Gardens as part of their Georgia O’Keefe Paintings from Hawai`i series. The film will be shown in the auditorium in the library every Sunday at 2PM from July 8th and September 30th. It’s free with the price of admission to the New York Botanical Garden. Also, “Island to Island” will screen at the Cambridge Museum of Anthropology on the closing evening of the European Society For Oceanists conference in early December.
On Friday, March 30, twenty prospective anthropology Ph.D. program applicants of color assembled at NYU’s Department of Anthropology for a full day workshop on successful applications to doctoral program. This is the second year of the initiative, Anthropology in Color, which is organized by the NYU Department of Anthropology’s Diversity Committee. Participants gave feedback that the workshop left them much more aware of how and why to apply for Ph.D. level training in anthropology; as one prospective applicant said, “I learned more in one day about applying for a doctorate than I learned in four years of college!”
NYU Doctoral students Alia Ayman and Melissa Lefkowitz recently published an edited transcript of their organized panel discussion “Making the Rounds: Ethnographic Film in Circulation” in the Cultural Anthropology website’s Visual and New Media Review. The event featured five anthropologists, filmmakers, and industry professionals whose work is integral to thinking about ethnographic film today to discuss their perspectives on the genre: Alice Apley, Executive Director of Documentary Educational Resources; Rachel Chanoff, Director of THE OFFICE performing arts + film; Faye Ginsburg, David B. Kriser Professor and Director of the Center for Media, Culture, and History at New York University; Toby Lee, Assistant Professor in the Department of Cinema Studies at New York University; and Pegi Vail, Associate Director of the Center for Media, Culture and History.
