Visuality gains increasing importance in contemporary social communication. Thus the role of Visual Anthropology implies evolving responsibilities embedded in the diversified modes to research, analyze and express social representations and dynamics. In this session we will try to investigate Visual Anthropologie’s capacity to condense time and sensoriality in the
attempt to understand society's shifts. The speakers are invited to accompany their theoretical papers, with audio-visual works in the form of photography, film, new media. The focus of this session will address the research of society's constructions, transformations, processes, be it of cultural, social, political nature. On this occasion, discussants are invited to question Visual Anthropology potentials and limits, rethink research methods, choices and difficulties, debate the dilemmas criscrossed while trying to contextualize, conceptualize and visualize the continuous changes of our society.
