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 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.
