ANTH 3010 - Anthropology through Film


Anthropology through Film is designed to introduce students to the concepts, methods, and practices of cultural anthropology through the viewing and analysis of ethnographic films and the reading of select ethnographic writings. A principal course objective is to learn how to analyze what the filmmaker has done well and what is lacking in the ethnographer’s portrayal of other cultures. Consequently, more general issues of representing other cultures will be considered in relation to the themes of power, the legacy of colonialism, and the world economic system. This course satisfies WMU Essential Studies Level 2: Exploration and Discovery – Artistic Theory and Practice Category.
