ANTH 3610 - Visual Anthropology



Goals: This course examines the ways culture and society are represented and imagined visually. While we will primarily focus on photography and film, we will also look more broadly at the visual aspects of culture as it intersects with material culture, media and the digital. A central concern will be to examine the ways that these technologies construct knowledge and understanding of ourselves and others.

Content: The course emphasizes equal parts of theory and practice. Film screenings and theoretical works will provide a foundation for members of the class to make their own films. The last half of the semester will engage students individually and in groups with creating documentary research projects using visual research methods.

Taught: Once per year

Prerequisite: ANTH 1160 or SOC 3000 or consent of the instructor
