The VISCAM project
Main goal for the VISCAM project is to develop sustainable education programs in Visual Anthropology at the Universities of Maroua, Ngaoundéré, and Tromsø through rotation and sharing of students and staff, pursuit of academic excellence, and a focus on current issues relevant to peace and wellbeing.
Subgoals are the following:
- Promote internationalization through sustainable, long-term collaboration, imparting benefits to institutions, teachers and students from UiTromsø, UoMaroua, and UoNgaoundéré.
- The project will develop innovative teaching, research, and dissemination practices, based on the crossed regards methodology.
- Create applicable knowledge about the changing livelihood strategies in Northern Cameroon.
The project’s principal results will be: mobility from South to North – 4 PhD and 14 Master’s students; mobility from North to South – 4 Master’s students; the creation of three online educational tools; the internationalization of non-mobile students through common workshops and guest lectures; two special issues of university journals at UoMaroua and UoNgaoundéré; and the production of 22 student films.
