Moving beyond text: using video to share research on food insecurity

Blogs like this are just one way that academics can share their research with a wider audience. SAFN member Kenneth Maes put together a short audio slide show of the research he did for his dissertation. This clip concerns food insecurity among AIDS care volunteers in urban Ethiopia during the 2008 food crisis. Kenneth posted his video on the Emory University Grad School website and YouTube.

Kenneth’s video is very powerful. It is a great example of one of the ways in which new digital media can help anthropologists reach a wider audience and spread the word about what they are seeing, learning and doing. We can’t wait to post more video clips and SAFN member research here.
