Short abstract:

The workshop will elaborate the development of visual ethnography in South-Eastern Europe after transition processes in former Yugoslavia and in the neighbouring countries. Technological and methodological changes in last two decades will be presented and discussed.

Long abstract:

The workshop will display, discuss and analyse the circumstances in which visual researchers in South-Eastern Europe develop their work, meeting with new technological, methodological and social and political changes. Are we ready to understand and accept a new discourse in the time of so-called new reality also in the field of visual ethnography? Are we able to analyse a whole new visual issue with analitical apparatus from the past? Do social and political changes influence the image of visual ethnography? Which new contents are presenting the focus of visual research today? These are some of the questions which will be exposed during the workshop. The speakers from Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia and Romania will be invited to reveal their experience. Many different ways of presentation will be welcome: papers, posters, films, videos, multimedia.
