What becomes of anthropology when it is practiced in other media than the written word like photography or film?
As anthropologists you will do fieldwork for three months on a topic (and in a locale) of your choice. Yet the primary material you will bring home from the field will be visual. How this visual material can be made to speak to anthropological debates about your research topic is what you will discover. This track requires a critical engagement with the expressive powers of still and moving images and sound; a willingness to experiment; and a thorough understanding of anthropology as a practice of mediation.
