The Australian National University

Centre for Visual Anthropology

ANU is home to a dynamic community of scholars working across the broad fields of visual anthropology and visual culture research. The ANU Centre for Visual Anthropology (CVA) draws its membership from across the University. Among our members are several internationally renowned ethnographic filmmakers and anthropologists. Our research and teaching interests are broad and diverse. A number of us are committed to producing work that is multi-disciplinary in scope. We all share a commitment to foregrounding the visual as a distinctive prism through which to comprehend human experience and diverse social phenomena. 

ANU is the only Australian university to offer courses in the practical and conceptual methods of visual anthropology at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as fostering a growing program of PhD and postdoctoral scholarship.
