Visual Anthropology Laboratory

Visual Anthropology Laboratory has been established to capture the ethnographic nuances around important social issues concerning everyday life of local communities.

The laboratory aspires to become the epicenter of documentation, projection and advocacy of anthropological insight at a national platform. Arguing that visual representation is one shade closer to reality in comparison to the conventional ethnography, the presence of Visual Laboratory helps in recording and analyzing history in a visual perspective as well as documenting visual imageries of present day life.

The visual medium is becoming important genre for unfolding policy initiatives and programme by Development planners and administrators. Visual text and visual archives provide the necessary disciplinary insight in this direction for policy planning and governance.
