Call for comments: Applied anthropology and contemporary indigenous art
A small announcement. Dr Silvia Lanzetta, a former student in the Macquarie Applied Anthropology program, and who completed her PhD between Sociology at Macquarie and Philosophy at the University of Florence, has an interesting paper online connecting applied anthropology with the study of contemporary indigenous art. She is seeking comments on the current draft (PDF).The paper focuses on the Boomalli Aboriginal Artists‘ Co-op in Sydney and sets out to target “the mainstream art-critique in order to contribute to a change in the epistemological attitude towards the so-called Aboriginal urban art.”
If you have any feedback on the paper, feel free to send it to Silvia at: silvialanzetta [at] libero.it or leave a comment on this post.
