Dr Stephanie Bunn
Senior Lecturer, Department of Social Anthropology
Since 2012, Stephanie has been working on the Woven Communities project. This is an AHRC funded ethno-historical and archival research project into Scottish vernacular basketry. The project is developing an interactive website, gathering data through both practical interventions and a blog in collaboration with local basket-makers, the Scottish Basketmakers Circle.
Stephanie is also a participating member of the Knowing from the Inside Research group, an ERC funded project based at the University of Aberdeen, under Tim Ingold. This practice-focussed research project is concerned with the relationship between craft and anthropology. Recent seminars and events include at the Bauhaus in Weimar (on sewing) and at the Vooruit in Ghent (on the creative act).
