About the course
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 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 2016) and have an overview of current debates and research topics in visual anthropology and ethnography.
Deadline for application: May 25.
