Whitney has been at the helm of GE design, production and concept development since 2009. Her continuing contribution has allowed this site to become the innovative platform that it is! For her 2012 visual anthropology masters dissertation at the University of Oxford, she began an ethnography of academic publishing, questioning the relationship between academic legitimacy and the appearance of ‘non-design.’ Learning from her interviews with students, academics, printers, and publishers, Whitney has sculpted Global Ethnographic to be a practical resource for both students addicted to PDFs and anyone interested in anthropological perspectives over a coffee at their desk. Her research revolves around the anthropology of graphic design, representational practice, photography, tourism, stereoscopic imaging, & phenomenology. She currently lives in Washington D.C.
