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.
