About the event
Join us for the official launch of CORA and the first issue of the journal: CONSTRUCTIONS, COLLECTIVES, REFLECTIONS. About CORA CORA (Collective Research in Anthropology) is a collaborative space that allows questioning of what counts as research and how knowledge can emerge from experimentation with form. We are interested in alternative ways of knowing that blur the boundaries between art and research. We want CORA to allow for critical thinking about what counts as publishable work while maintaining a rigorous and constructive review process. CORA aims to be a platform for interventions, creative engagement, and local critique. It is a space for authors, students, and Faculty (why not!) to publish experimental and more traditional academic work should they desire it, creatively engaging in collaborative learning. CORA seeks to incorporate different forms of knowledge: through art, poetry, photography, visual media, and forms of writing work, from empirical research to book reviews and ethnographies. Grounded in anthropology, the journal expands its scope to the broader social sciences and is open to reflections beyond fixed disciplinary boundaries. We aim to engage with different forms of expression that build knowledge to break down attitudes reinforcing epistemic coloniality.
