DIRECTOR OF COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AND PARTNERSHIPS, PROFESSOR OF ANTHROPOLOGY AT TOWSON UNIVERSITY
Matthew Durington is a Professor of Anthropology in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Criminal Justice at Towson University. His research interests include ethnographic media, networked anthropology and visual/urban anthropology geographically focused in Baltimore City and Southern Africa. His most recent article “Push It Along: On Not Making an Ethnographic Film in Baltimore” (Transforming Anthropology) is co-authored with two Wide Angle youth producers and focuses on media responses after the Baltimore Uprising of 2015.
“After working with Wide Angle Youth Media for close to a decade as a colleague and ally through various projects I am incredibly excited to finally participate on the board and help the efforts of this amazing organization even more. It is an exciting time in media and activism and I have no doubt we will be able to take Wide Angle in exciting directions in years to come to support our youth producers and impact change in Baltimore and beyond.”
