Robert Lazarus

 

I study the documentation of culture. My focus is intergenerational communication through technology and performance.

Extensive fieldwork has been conducted in Northern Australia, especially with Yolngu people in Arnhem Land. Research on documentary practices occurs through a range of mediums and cross-cultural spaces. At the Grimwade Centre, I teach in the areas of media and performance conservation. With engagement and partnership activity focused on Indigenous, intangible and and digital heritage. A disciplinary background in Media, Education and Anthropology shapes my teaching and research methods. I publish a wide variety of cultural material, including ethnographic films, interactive installations, music anthologies, performance recordings, radio documentaries, conference sessions, written articles and policy documents. Current projects include: Cross-Cultural Documentary practices in Arnhem Land between 1935-2015, and a multisited ethnography of persistent preservation practices in the contemporary conservation field. My research areas are: Documentation Studies, Ethnography Methods, Cultural Anthropology, Media Culture, Digital and Intangible Heritage.
