Anthropology, Art and Perception

University of St Andrews

Content

The MRes in Anthropology, Art and Perception provides training for postgraduate research into the anthropology of human creativity, art, material culture and visual expression. It takes perception as its starting point and draws on themes extending across the subject boundaries between art and anthropology. These themes include:

the senses and perception in anthropology; the role of community and cooperation in both making and use of apprenticeship and practice-based research; observation and the use of attention in drawing, photography, sound and film; representation; a practical sensory project; heritage; design anthropology; snd commonalities between anthropological field work and contemporary arts practice.

Students will explore new ways of thinking anthropologically and gain access to cutting-edge research tools for future research, including practical 'learning labs' with invited experts and a field visit.
