Lee Douglas is a PhD candidate in socio-cultural Anthropology at New York University and a documentary photographer and filmmaker in NYU’s Culture and Media Program. Her research focuses on the intersection of forensic science, modes of documentation and image-making practices related to the excavation of mass graves and the identification of remains in post-Franco Spain. Paying close attention to the historical, social,and political uses use of forensic evidence, her research asks what the entanglement between science and visual representation reveals about the production and mobilization of knowledge in times of economic austerity. Her doctoral research has been supported by a Dissertation Proposal Devlopment Fellowship from the Social Science Research Council (Science/Art Studies with Peter Galison & Caroline Jones), a Tinker Foundation Grant, the Andrew Sauter Award, the Annette B. Weiner Fellowship and a Marie Curie Early Career Research Fellowship. At present, Douglas is also a member of the I+D+i research group “The Past Below Earth: Exhumations and Memory Politics in Contemporary Spain” at the Center for Human and Social Sciences at Spain’s National Research Council in Madrid. Douglas holds an MA in Anthropology at New York University, an MSc in Visual Anthropology from Oxford University and a BA in Individualized Studies with a concentration in Latin American Studies and Photography from the Gallatin School at New York University. In 2006, she was a Fulbright Fellow in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In addition to her current work in Spain, Douglas has conducted ethnographic and archival research for projects combining sociocultural analysis and image production in places as diverse as Santiago, Chile, Córdoba, Argentina and her home town of Dallas, Texas. She is a contributor to the publication and exhibition Human Rights / Copy Rights: Visual Archives in the Age of Declassification (University of Chile, Museum of Contemporary Art) and the co-curator of Artless Photographs, a multi-media exhibit showcased in the 2012 Cincinnati Photography Biennial – FotoFocus.
