Sensory Ethnography Lab

Directed by Lucien Castaing-Taylor and managed by Ernst Karel, the Sensory Ethnography Lab provides an academic context for the development of creative works that test and respond to the traditions of documentary film. Anthropologists and artists who conduct research at the SEL investigate processes of realism and representation, expanding the potential of visual and acoustic media to represent indigeneity and alterity, lived experience and cultural difference, around the world.
