ANTH 2243 – Anthropology Through Film

(3 credits – TG) 3 hours lecture

This course takes a historical and theoretical perspective of ethnographic film, the visual medium through which anthropologists and filmmakers have “captured” and presented human cultural experience for almost 100 years. Students will engage in a critical analysis of the representations presented in ethnographic film and consider relationships between the development of the ethnographic film genre and the development of Anthropology as a whole.

Prerequisite: Anthropology 1103 or consent of the department.
