EthnoGRAPHIC: In Conversation with Manuel Ramos

Fri 28 April 2017

Manuel Ramos is a major figure in the worlds of both anthropology and graphic art. His journals of everyday life in Ethiopia and in Portugal develop various languages of analyses and exposition in the field, and his rich and detailed graphics are well known in Continental Europe and Africa, although still little known to English speaking readers. Recently, Ramos has been collaborating with fellow ethnographers in Brazil, Portugal and Scotland to advance debate and discussion of the discipline of graphic ethnography. In this special event, organised by The Drouth journal as part of the sketchday+festival, Ramos will speak with local graphic artist (and occasional ethnographer) and writer Mitch Miller about drawing in the field, capturing the moment and creating knowledge through both images and the word.

This event is supported by The Drouth, Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, and CCA.
