Cultural and Social Anthropology: Visual Anthropology (track)


What happens to anthropology when it uses film and not written text as a principal medium to explore and convey human experience in diverse cultural and social settings? And what happens to filmmaking when it incorporates anthropological approaches? The Visual Anthropology track allows you to explore the possibilities of camera-based research. In addition to reading and writing, you become familiar with the intellectual endeavour of filmmaking as ethnographic practice.
