Gilbert Seldes Multimodal Postdoctoral Fellow
Ethnography, Film, and music anthropology
Scholar, performer, and media maker. Juan’s intellectual agenda explores analytics of listening and world-making praxes among dervishes in Anatolia, and Tukanoan shamans in Colombia. His research methods include collaborative projects for producing photographs, texts, films, artifacts and installations. The experimental ethnography he has developed is a performative response to contemporary debates in the humanities about object-oriented ontologies, sensory embodiments, and indigenous analytics on media.
