Social Anthropology (Visual and Sensory Media)

This course draws exclusively on modules drawn from social anthropology and the granada centre for visual anthropology; in the 1st semester, students normally take 2 modules exploring the representation of visual culture in the visual arts, in cinema and in ethnographic film and related documentary genres; in the 2nd semester, they take a practice-based module that offers basic training in photography and sound-recording as well as encouraging reflection on these media both as means of creating anthropological knowledge and as a means of representing it; an important feature of this module are the workshops given by practising photographers and sound-recordists; NB this last module requires the payment of an additional bench fee to cover equipment and facilities costs; the dissertation normally consists of a text directly supported by and integrated with still images and/or sound recordings.
