Polology – Independent Interdisciplinary Research Group

Relaunch of the online platform Polology in April 2017. The three founders Melody Howse, Jóhanna Björk Sveinbjörndóttir and Anne Chahine met during their study of Visual and Media Anthropology at the Freie Universität Berlin.

Polology aims to create a platform for everything that is considered somewhere “in-between”. As a hive mind, a website and discursive space we engage various disciplines through collaboration and discussion. We feature people and projects that have a focus on innovative visual and sensorial research methods which cross disciplinary and cultural boundaries.  This diversity of knowledge and practice we see as a strength and our purpose is to help shape, develop and define the role of visual anthropology outside both inside and outside of academia.
