Paper long abstract:

« Looking at anthropology » is a video project. It is a series of short films (3 to 5 min) presenting contemporary anthropologists around the world. The films portray anthropologists as they present themselves, their motivations, their practice, as they reflect on the role of anthropology and its place and impact in today's world. This project aims to highlight the practical and concrete use of anthropology against the general background of diverse conceptions of anthropology. Although not without aesthetic ambitions, the project is also an illustration of new territories for video anthropology.
