Course Description and Requirements This course focuses on a critical examination of ethnographic and anthropological films, beginning with early documentaries and extending to contemporary films for TV and the classroom A sequence of films (videos) will be shown and discussed in class. Readings on anthropological filmmaking will be assigned to correspond to issues posed by specific films. Topics include filmmaking strategies and techniques, pros and cons of film versus written accounts, ethics of filmmaking, representation cultural differences, and the nature of audience reaction. Course Goals Mass audiences, in addition to students in classrooms. are increasingly being exposed to films (videos) about non-western peoples and "exotic" groups within our own society. These films are variously intended to entertain. inform and educate viewers. In recent years anthropologists have participated in the making of ethnographic films, have reflected critically on the significance of such films for anthropology, and have generated a substantial theoretical literature relating ethnographic filmmaking and viewing to a range of current issues in the field. In the process, the field of visual anthropology was born and currently enjoys a vigorous development within the field as a whole. The main purpose of this course is to develop in the student a critical awareness of issues involved in the making of ethnographic and documentary films This will be accomplished through a combination of readings in visual anthropology, the screening of selected documentary films, and panel discussions.

Time tabling Lent Term 2001 Content This module is concerned with how anthropology can contribute to - and gain insight from - the analysis of visual forms of representation. It explores how different cultures are depicted in a range of media, in particular ethnographic film and photography, and deals with the analytical and ethical issues raised by these representations. It considers how the analysis of art and material culture can be used by the anthropologist to gain insight into cultural forms and values. It also examines how different cultural groups represent themselves, to each other and to outsiders through art, material culture and performance.

    The purposes of this course are threefold: (1) to familiarize students with issues in ethnographic video production, (2) to impart a knowledge of principles of video production in relation to ethnographic contexts and anthropological research, and (3) to promote the learning of practical skills relevant to filming, editing and producing ethnographic films. These goals will be pursued through assigned readings and class discussions, analyses of video footage, in and out of class practica, and the production by each student of an approximately 20 minute video on a topic to be negotiated with the instructor. The readings for the course are drawn from three recent anthologies: Film as Ethnography (FAE) edited by Peter Crawford and David Turton, Manchester University Press (1992); Anthropological Filmmaking (AF) edited by Jack Rollwagen, Harwood (1988) and

    AN HISTORICAL SKETCH OF visual anthropology AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY. Thispaper was presented at a panel at the American Anthropological
    This paper was presented at a panel at the American Anthropological Association meetings, December 2, 1998 in Philadelphia entitled Seeing Culture: The Anthropology of Visual Communication at Temple University. Do not cite without author's permission. In 1967 the anthropology department at Temple University hired Jay Ruby with the understanding that he would develop his interests in ethnographic film into a course and related activities. For several years prior to that, the department had organized an annual "Ethnographic Film Festival" that provided the faculty with a chance to see films they might wish to use in their teaching. In the spring of 1968 an undergraduate seminar in visual anthropology was taught and an Anthropological Film Festival organized featuring Sol Worth showing and discussing films recently completed by Navahos and Ray Birdwhistell exploring his use of film in the study of body movement. A number of other films were screened and discussed including Asen Balicki's Netsilik Eskimo series.
    Over the years, the film festival evolved into the Conference on Visual Anthropology (COVA), co-directed by Jay Ruby and Denise O'Brien, - an internationally renowned event attended by hundreds of people. COVA featured film and video screenings often with the filmmakers present, photographic exhibitions, scholarly paper sessions, hands-on workshops in video and photography, and organized discussions about funding, distribution and training. COVA lasted until 1980 and had a major impact upon the formation of the field of visual anthropology.

    Course Description
    Visual anthropology is premised on the belief that cultures can be understood through the visual symbols that they use. Documentary visual images of other cultures have a seemingly objective explanatory power that masks the subjectivity implicit in their making. We will analyze the history, philosophy, ethics, production and consumption of ethnographic film and ethnophotography within both the academic field of anthropology as well as broader popular culture.
    Prerequisites and Requirements
    Open to first year students. Offered alternate years. No other course requirements. You must attend the first class in order to retain your slot on the course roster. Films will be screened each week on Wednesday afternoons at 4:35 pm in Olin-Rice 101. You must watch the films then or view them yourselves individually at the Media Services department on the 4th floor of the Humanities Building by Thursday morning.

    Urgent Anthropology Cultural Policy Cultural Tourism
    Introduction to Articles on this Web Site
    The articles by Gerald Wieczorek, Belinda Jeursen, Kaitira Kandjii and myself, are the result of a larger project undertaken under the auspices of the Centre for Cultural and Media Studies at the University of Natal, also in association with the Smithsonian, Rob Waldron and Michigan State University's Department of Anthropology and African Media Program. The CMS project is entitled "Semiotics of Visual Anthropology: Encoding, Reception and Orality." The articles included here complement thematic issue called "Encounters in the Kalahari" published in Visual Anthropology Wieczorek's comparison between subsistence and sports hunting, via his study of John Marshall's The Hunters (1958), derived from a suggestion made by Cynthia Close, who manages Documentary Educational Resources (DER) in Boston. Robert Gardner, a computer consultant for DER, and a hunter, responded empathetically to the film. Close hypothesised that sports and other hunters might therefore respond in similar, possibly existential, ways to The Hunters , in comparison say, to historians, anthropologists and media scholars. Wieczorek, a former US Army Ranger and later, stockbroker, a hunter, and a traveller to exotic places, was a student in a visual anthropology course I taught at Michigan State University in the Spring semester of 1998. I suggested to Wieczorek that he respond to Close's suggestion with his own study drawing on his own experiences. The result, I think, is intriguing and, as Close anticipated, offers a conceptually refreshing analysis of the film (including
