A collaborative research project on a Nineteenth Century Photograph Album established in July 2003 by David Zeitlyn. This project starts with an album of 22 Nineteenth Century Photographs purchased at a car boot sale in Cambridge on 29 June 2003. As a social anthropologist I am interested in ways in which photographs act as repositories of meaning and ways in which their meaning may be changed as information about them is made available ...
The Ethnographics Gallery is a project of the Centre for Social Anthropology and Computing. It is the direct descendent of the oldest online resource for Anthropology, dating to 1986. While we are giving the Gallery a face lift, please remember there are 20 year old pages within these halls.
We have no funding stream for this site, and so little time to maintain older material so it well may have a bit of a museum effect. Newer material will be appropriately wizzy.
The Ethnographics Gallery is a publication of the Centre for Social Anthropology and Computing. This site contains reports on CSAC research, Teaching materials, and Resources that can be used for planning and executing research, including bibliographic materials, databases of ethnographic material, fieldnotes, descriptors, and software for working with ethnographic data. Suggestions always welcome, but we have no funding stream for this website. It contains materials created since 1986, and many of them are rather unfashionable by today's standards. We do, however, want everything to work! mail suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Our first internet service was begun in November, 1986, followed by our first web site in May, 1993, one of the first 400 web sites. The Ethnographics Gallery was founded in Feburary 1994. Our mission at that time was to provide a forum for anthropologists on the internet, and we helped to launch a number of organisations into cyberspace. Today, we are mostly concerned with novel forms of online publishing, disseminating our research, promoting learning resources, and disseminating information about using computers in anthropological research.
