LA GRANDE, Ore. May 9, 2017 – Aaron Thornburg, Ph.D., assistant professor of anthropology, is the guest for the next colloquium at Eastern Oregon University, Thursday, May 11.
Thornburg’s presentation, “Documenting Dublin: Mobile Participatory Visual Research,” begins at 4 p.m. in Huber Auditorium in Badgley Hall Room 102. Light refreshments will be provided and the event will be streamed at livestream.com/eou/colloquium.
The discussion will center on Thornburg’s participatory visual research done with young people in both the United States and the Republic of Ireland. Utilizing mobile digital storytelling techniques in a workshop setting, Thornburg trains youths how to produce videos and then sends them out to create representations of their own communities.
Thornburg has been teaching anthropology courses since 2007 and is in his fourth year with EOU’s anthropology/sociology program. He holds a Ph.D. in cultural anthropology from Duke University, where he also completed a graduate certificate in education policy research.
