Craig Campbell is Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Texas at Austin and affiliated with the Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies. His second book, Agitating Images: Photography Against History in Indigenous Siberia was published by the University of Minnesota Press in the fall of 2014. He is currently working on the cultural history of an unbuilt hydro-electric dam in Central Siberia, the weird time of a shadow, re-mediations of socialist encounters with Indigenous peoples in Siberia, and the aesthetics of damaged, degraded, and manipulated photographs.
Craig is one of the founding members of the Ethnographic Terminalia collective. He is also an active member of the Writing with Light photo-essay initiative. He runs the Intermedia Workshop which is part of the Bureau for Experimental Ethnography at UT Austin.
