About the author


Hello dear reader, thank you for visiting my blog. Please feel free to comment on my posts or share them in your social network.

My name is Charissa Dechène and I am a MA cultural anthropologist who loves talking, researching and writing about visual images in everyday life. Especially by deconstructing them and connect what I see to broader social constructions, such as gender, sexuality, ethnicity and culture. I am interested in the different ways such images shape our perceptions, ideas, and opinions about socio-cultural issues in our societies. I use my background in the social sciences to provide the necessary context to these issues.

I am Dutch and live in The Netherlands. I am a Contributing Writer for Peeps, you can find my article on female superheroes here: Why I love female superheroes – Peeps Forum. An adjusted version of my blog Female Empowerment in “Mad Max: Fury Road”  has been published in the feminist anthropological journal LOVA #36, p. 50-57.

I also write reviews of TV series for a Dutch online platform. Here you can find my reviews of S4 The Americans, S5 House of LiesKilljoys and Dark Matter and more.

I would be happy to explore ways to work with you in socio-cultural research, marketing or media in which I can combine my expertise and love for qualitative research, media and visual culture.

Please feel free to contact me at observationsofthevisual@gmail.com or leave a comment.

I am also self-employed at www.ceadiversity.com
