Andrew Causey, Associate Professor of Cultural Anthropology, Columbia College Chicago, presented on "Line Drawing as a Research Method." His presentation explored the use of line drawing as a general interpretive process to aid visual perception. Following a brief introduction of the place of drawing in his research in Sumatra, Indonesia, and a rationale for such work in general, participants practiced the act of seeing through drawing. The focus of the presentation was on training ourselves to better see, not on producing finished drawings.
