Hearing the Voice is pleased to be joined by Dr Andrew Irving from the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology at the University of Manchester, who will be speaking on ‘Everyday (Ad)ventures in Ekphrastic Ethnography’ on Wednesday 18 September in the Henry Dyson Room, Hild-Bede (number 30 on this map), 3.30-5pm.

Dr Irving’s research interests include death; illness and medical anthropology; interior dialogue, memory and imagination; visual, sensory and bodily perception; the anthropology of time; art; performances and aesthetics; experimental methods and collaborative anthropology; existential and phenomenological anthropology; urban anthropology and spatial perception.

His experimental art/anthropology research project, New York Stories, is funded by the Wenner Gren Foundation and the ESRC and aims to “research and represent how different modes of inner expression – including interior dialogues, unarticulated moods, imaginative lifeworlds and emotional reverie – constitute peoples lived experience of urban life and mediate social-cultural spaces but remain hidden beneath the surface of public activities.”
