Alissa Jordan is a multimodal cultural anthropologist who received her Ph.D. from the Department of Anthropology at the University of Florida in 2016. Her research focuses on questions of bodily being, bodily security, and creativity across field sites in rural Haiti, urban Ghana, and in social spaces in virtual and augmented reality. She investigates these questions using methods of experimental writing, collaborative nonlinear filmmaking, sensory mapping, photography, museum exhibition, and digital experimentations (VR, 360-degree video, binaural sound, interactive network analysis). She is currently producing an experimental film “Bodily Bonds,” on the life, words, and visceral performance art of co-director and trans artivist Va Bene Elikem Fiatsi.
