Founded by Beth Uzwiak and Laurian Bowles in 2014, this blog is one component in a constellation of projects that explore the intersections between anthropology, art, and activism.  Here we muse about politically engaged writing, fieldwork, academia, and social justice among other topics.  We experiment with sensory ethnography; we talk art and feminism; we discuss our projects that use participatory, action-oriented and collaborative research methods.

Our “From the Field” posts are short observations and images (usually taken with a cell phone on the fly) from fieldwork sites and everyday life.   You can also find exhibition and book reviews, interviews, and long-form pieces.  ENVISION has no institutional affiliation and we write when we can.
