(Offered as ANTH 206 and FAMS 357.) This course will examine ethnographic film beginning in the early twentieth century. Through a combination of critical readings and film viewings we will address issues of representation, vision, gender, film techniques, knowledge production, and our relationships with difference vis-à-vis ethnographic film. While not specifically a production course, the making of student videos is encouraged, and student-made videos will be screened in class at the end of the semester.
Limited to 30 students. Spring semester. Visiting Professor Hall.
If Overenrolled: Priority given to seniors and majors.
