Visual Anthropology Lab

Visual Anthropology is, at its base, the study of visual representation; of art, archaeological artifacts, architecture - of people, the human body, dance, proxemics, gestures, movement, and body language, and many other human and even non-human primate behavior and material.

Technological advancements in film and photography and the scope and immediacy of access to human created images are bringing new questions and research to bear in visual anthropology. At Wichita State there is a great resource for students at the visual anthropology lab, a resource that steps in stride with others such as SARF - offering the resources for students to compile images of biological anthropology work into usable materials to assist in research and projects.
