Dialogic Ethnographies

Applying Bakhtinian and post-Bakhtinian literary theories to ethnographic methodology, writing, ethics, and archival practice.

The Dialogic Ethnographies Working Group applies Bakhtinian and post-Bakhtinian literary theories to ethnographic methodology, writing, ethics, and archival practice. We take as our grounding assumption that interlocutors in the field — formerly known as informants — as partners in creating ethnographic knowledge.

Comparative Media Studies Working Group

Considering comparative analyses of forms, genres, and concepts of “media” to challenge the categorization of “media” as a branch of film.

The Comparative Media Studies Working Group interrogates different forms, genres, and concepts of “media,” with particular attention to transnational circulation and regional specificity. This working group’s aim is to challenge the predominant categorization and definition of “media” as a branch of film, communications, or new media studies. The Comparative Media Working Group aims to contextualize and historicize “media” and to compare media arts, forms, and practices without privileging specific media objects.

Environmental Science & History

Discussion of the interrelationship between human beings and their environment.

The Environmental Science and History (ES&H) working group brings together faculty, graduate students, and specialists from history, geography, anthropology, and the environmental and physical sciences to discuss the interrelationship between human beings and their environment. Berkeley is home to scholars whose research unites a humanistic vision with the study of particular ecologies and environmental change from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.

New Media

A group to study the social, political, aesthetic, and philosophical implications of digital media.

The New Media working group invites graduate students and faculty from multiple departments to collaborate around a shared interest in the social, political, aesthetic, and philosophical implications of digital media.

Since the group’s meetings are structured according to the research interests of our diverse members, our intellectual focus is dynamic and interdisciplinary in nature.

This working group is funded by the Townsend Center for the Humanities.
