Drawing on recent cross-cultural debates in theories and practices of media representation and difference in the fields of cultural studies and visual anthropology, this work aims to think through, and alongside, images of migrancy. A section of the work, which focuses on the situated and embodied aspects of archival film and photographic research as a dialogue that the researcher enters into with images and texts, will be published in a collection of essays by scholars and practitioners.
