SHORT COURSE: INTRODUCTION TO VISUAL ANTHROPOLOGY: DOCUMENTARIES AND ETHNOGRAPHIC FILMS AT GOLDSMITHS

SHORT COURSE: INTRODUCTION TO VISUAL ANTHROPOLOGY: DOCUMENTARIES AND ETHNOGRAPHIC FILMS AT GOLDSMITHS

booking: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/introduction-to-visual-anthropology-goldsmiths-university-of-london-tickets-48907337162 info: https://www.gold.ac.uk/short-courses/introduction-visual-anthropology/ Description of the course In this course we will identify what makes an ethnographic film work. We will ask: how can we portray other people’s way of life on film truthfully? What is the appropriate way to represent them? Is it possible to translate their experience objectively? What does the ethnographic method bring to filmmaking? We will consider how anthropology has used filmmaking since the birth of cinema and how filmmaking practices in anthropology have evolved with advances in technology. This course will introduce you to what you can gain in understanding and making images with the tools of anthropology. Each week we will watch an ethnographic film which helped to shape the discipline of visual anthropology. Each film will be followed by a discussion considering the pros and cons of the film, the filmmaker’s perspective, the way the subject matter is represented and the methods used.
