Culture, Media and Ethnographic Practice - ANTH811
This course introduces students to ethnographic media along two primary avenues: First, the production and reception of images as cultural practices; and second, the theory, history and practice of using media in ethnographic research. Using the facilities at the Anthropology Department's Ethnographic Media Lab, students learn to shoot and edit a short video during the course of the semester. Drawing on readings, films, and short video projects, students explore the ethics and aesthetics of imaging cultural difference. Sample topics include: images of the exotic in modernity; comparative study of national cinemas; and indigenous media production in South America and Australia.
