Creative Ethnology Studio

The Creative Ethnology Studio is a collaborative venture initiated by the Intercultural Research Centre, Heriot-Watt University, and the Scottish s200 victoria.waltersEthnology team at the University of Edinburgh.

The first collaborative event, Who is Precarious Now? An Exploration of Homing Through Art, a workshop led by IRC-Associate Dr Victoria Walters (UWE Bristol), was held on Friday, 20 January 2017.

The Creative Ethnology Studio was established following the inaugural lecture by Edinburgh University's Gary West (30 November 2016), on 'Performing Testimony: towards a creative ethnology for the 21st century', as a joint seminar/workshop series with the aim of facilitating a network of researchers interested in exploring the creative aspects and potentials of ethnological practice.
