ANTH 3710 - Visual Anthropology

5 credit hours
Visual Anthropologists explore the connections between the sensory worlds that humans live in. They are not only concerned with the images and symbols humans construct, they also critically examine how representations of culture are constructed, disseminated and interpreted by audience(s). In this course, we will learn methods and analytical techniques to help us make sense of the world around us by making images and discerning what images stand for. We will explore how images (such as photographs, video, web pages, the internet, art, museums, etc.) are used by anthropologists in their work, the ethno-historical context of image making, participatory approaches to visual research and how we might apply visual techniques to solve realworld problems.
