Amy C. Hall (Section 01)


(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.
