Social Anthropology (Media and Performance)

This course is specifically intended for those who plan to carry on to the doctoral programme in anthropology, media and performance (AMP); drawing on the ethnofiction of the anthropologist Jean Rouch and Augusto Boal's Theatre of the Oppressed, the aim of the pathway is to show how performance - ritual, dramaturgical or cinematographic - can serve as a means of social research, not merely by representing knowledge but also by provoking or creating it; students can select from modules covering the following topics: The history and theory of applied theatre; ethnographic documentary and cinema studies; practical training in photography and sound-recording; those proceeding to the AMP doctorate may also take basic film-training modules; NB both these last 2 audiovisual training modules require the payment of a bench fee to cover equipment and facilities costs; although this pathway does not offer similar basic training in practical theatre, students may enhance skills that they already have through workshops on topics as varied as: working with vulnerable groups and offending behaviour programmes; theatre in sites of conflict, museums and heritage sites; and community film and playwriting.
