JCU scoops the pool in national video competition

    Picking up their cameras to answer the question “What is Anthropology?”, JCU postgraduate students took out two out of three prizes in the Australian Anthropological Society’s Engaged Anthropology Instagram competition earlier this year. The People's Choice went to Victoria Baskin Coffey and Sebastian Lowe, curators of the art-anthropology collective, Otis Makers, while the Australian Network of Student Anthropologists prize went to Alicia Wheatley who made her short film while in lockdown in Costa Rica. 

    This is a fantastic outcome for these members of Visual, Digital, Material research group, a TCI initiative promoting experimental and non-text modes of social research and analysis. We hear that these films are already being used to introduce first year students to the discipline in Australia and beyond.
