Multimodal inventions

in conversation with 
Dr Isaac Marrero-Guillamón
(Goldsmiths, University of London) and Dr E. Gabriel Dattatreyan (Goldsmiths, University of London) 

This talk discusses our experiences and experiments in multimodal anthropology – a practice we conceptualise in relation to a politics of invention. We will elaborate on some of the key arguments we have made in our writing together (Dattatreyan & Marrero-Guillamón, 2019) and present examples from more recent work. As pedagogues and practitioners, we are interested in unpacking the modes of encounter and learning generated by different multimodal strategies. More specifically, we will explore how the latter open up opportunities for inventive engagements with anthropological mainstays such as journal articles, monographs and ethnographic films.
