The course introduces students to the history as well as current concepts in visual anthropology as a field of research and, in some very new instances, applied practice. What becomes of anthropology when it is practiced in media, other than the written word — such as photography or film? And what becomes of film and photography when they have anthropological pretensions? Visual anthropology enables you to explore possibilities of camera-based research. During the course, it will be important for us to understand how the work of visual anthropologists has challenged, expanded, and transformed the discipline of anthropology. And also to understand how methods and debates in visual anthropology raise important questions about authorship and cultural representation.
