ANTH 353 - Visual Anthropology


Units: 3
Three hours lecture per week
Prerequisite: ANTH 102  
Covers the growing field of visual anthropology focusing on the theoretical and practical aspects related to film and photography in social research. Students examine the use of visual material in anthropological research and in the presentation and consumption of anthropological knowledge, focusing particularly on photography and film, and address visuality itself as a domain of anthropological inquiry, exploring ways of seeing in culturally and historically specific contexts. Particular attention will be paid to the relationships between seeing, being seen, and modern formations of identity.
