Nowadays, visual anthropology has become an almost indispensable tool for anyone engaging in ethnographic research, visual analysis, studies of material culture, or critical engagements with cinema, photography and other forms of cultural display.

The aim of the seminar "Visual Ethnography of Cityscapes" is to give students the experience of filming in a highly diverse and multi-layered urban setting, present the product (film) of their research in Athens in a special section in the Athens Ethnographic Film Festival (November 2015) and have an overview of current debates and research topics in visual anthropology and ethnography. By participating and learning the filming and production process, the students gain some practical experience in the new context, use their skills, make new contacts and learn how to present their findings within wider local and global processes.

Application deadline: May 8.
