Seniors Victoria Anibarro, Marie Fouche, and Meredith Jones recently presented at the Seventh Annual Screening Scholarship Media Festival at the University of Pennsylvania. The theme of this year’s event was “On Rendering Matters of Concern and Present Histories.” The presentations were part of a session on “Creative Insurgence: Undergraduate Multimodality and Beyond.”
Anibarro’s short film on migration, borders, and mobility in the U.S. highlighted the significance of household in migration. Titled “Joel,” the ethnographic film resulted from a partnership between Citizen Action and Hamilton’s Anthropology Department.
Fouche focused on the experiences of black Muslim students in an audio essay titled “Navigating Spaces.” Her goal was to bring attention to the struggles of these students using academic resources and the personal narrative of a black Muslim student at Hamilton.
Jones presented an audio essay titled “Muslim American Women and the Democratic Party.” She examined the growing number of Muslim American women running for office in the U.S. and their motivations for doing so.
Assistant Professor of Anthropology Mariam Durrani accompanied the students.
