Spring 2015 Grant Recipient
Bremen Donovan (Anthropology) I am a PhD student in the Department of Anthropology (socio-cultural subfield) with a formal and practiced background in film. My dissertation research focuses on youth experience in West Africa and deals methodologically with sensory ethnography in relation to contemporary practices of filmmaking and archive. With the CGII graduate student research grant, I will spend the summer of 2015 in France, conducting archival research in Paris at collections including the Cin√©math√®que Afrique at the Institut Fran√ßais, the Archives de la Plan√®te at the Fondation Albert-Kahn, and the Cin√©math√®que Fran√ßaise. I will also meet personally with scholars and practitioners to explore theoretical and methodological questions related to my dissertation project.
