PhD Seminar: Living, Loving and Dying: Reflections on Ethnography, Existence and the Senses by Paolo Favero

Paolo Silvio Harald Favero is Associate Professor in Film Studies and Visual Culture at the University of Antwerp where he is a member of the Visual and Digital Cultures Research Center (ViDi). Trained as a social anthropologist at the University of Stockholm (Sweden), Paolo has devoted the core of his career to the study of visual culture in India. Presently he is conducting a visual/sensory/existential exploration of ageing and dying in New Delhi. Active also as image-maker, Paolo works on the incorporation of artistic and digital practices in ethnographic research. In 2017 he launched in collaboration with the University of Deusto (Bilbao) “EthnoAlly” a digital tool for supporting researchers in conducting emplaced, sensory and participatory ethnographic work. Paolo is the author of The Present Image: Visible Stories in a Digital Habitat (2018, Palgrave Macmillan) and of Image-Making-India: Visual Culture, Technology, Politics (2021, Routledge).
