Project title: MSc Visual, Material and Museum Anthropology

Chimwemwe is studying for an MSc in Visual, Material and Museum Anthropology with the University of Oxford. Her GHBN bursary supports her in her studies. She will attend lectures and seminars on current practice and themes in visual, material and museum anthropology as well as a research methods class. She will also attend numerous talks and events by leading researchers who visit the University. Through the MSc she will gain solid grounding in theoretical aspects emerging in anthropology. She is interested in examining ethical issues in representation of health research focusing on medical photography. Through the course she hopes to examine how displays and exhibitions relating to medicine and healing have been curated and are approached.
