Picturing Place: The Anthropology of Race, Class, and Community

Photographers Brenda Ann Kenneally and Danna Singer created frank depictions of the communities in which they were raised through their Upstate Girls and If It Rained an Ocean projects. These photographic series portray the realities of intergenerational poverty, and a complicated tangle of signification, race, and class. In this program, Kenneally and Singer are in conversation with anthropologist and University of Texas at Austin Professor John Hartigan Jr., who will draw on his own work across an array of methods, topics, and cultural studies to examine these topics, as well as what it means to portray, embed in, and study one's own community.
