165th Gellner Seminar
CASA (Czech Association for Social Anthropology) with the support of Antropofest arranges 165th Gellner Seminar.  The guest of the seminar is Mr. Mauro Bucci, Italian filmmaker and visual anthropologist. The topic of the seminar is „Representing Migrations through Ethnographic Cinema”. The phenomenon of migration affecting Africa and Italy, as well as Europe more generally, over the last several years is a favorite object of representation among Western mass media. Mr. Bucci will analyze the ethnographic fieldwork with a camera he undertook to realize “Hotel Splendid”. The fieldwork was based both on author´s  involvement in everyday life experiences of migrants, as well as a number of interventionist practices aimed at improving the asylum seekers’ conditions.

165th Gellner Seminar  takes place on Friday 26th January from 3 p.m. in Café Kampus, Náprstkova 10, Praha 1
