This course focuses on a variety of visual texts, from documentary films about non-Western cultures to fiction films made in the U.S. Special emphasis is placed on questions about visual representations of other cultures, and the way audience responses to visual texts reflect cultural values. Students will carry out independent fieldwork projects, in some cases making use of video-recording technologies.
Prerequisite: One previous anthropology course or ENGL 336; preference given to Anthropology Majors and Minors
