Workshop in Ethnographic Filmmaking with Judith and David MacDougall
AARHUS UNIVERSITY SUMMER SCHOOL, Denmark, AUGUST 20-26, 2010
The Aarhus University Summer School in visual anthropology is an intensive course designed for Danish and international students interested in a brief but challenging educational experience during the summer.
The course is open to students in anthropology and related disciplines from Denmark and elsewhere and is intended for people with no or little previous experience with filmmaking. The language of teaching is English.
The course approaches video as a new language that students and researchers can acquire and apply to their own disciplines, addressing it as both a research method and medium of expression in the humanities and human sciences:~An audiovisual language that has particular relevance in anthropological studies of the role of the senses and emotions in human life, our experience of time and duration, and the relations between human beings and their immediate environments.
The course provides practical training in basic video techniques as well as in-camera editing through a series of exercises enabling researchers to use a video camera in the field with some degree of confidence. The emphasis will be upon the use of video to create knowledge significantly different from that of written texts, rather than merely gathering visual records. The course assumes no prior knowledge of video-making. Participants will be requested to provide their own video cameras for the period of the course. For students who do not have access to cameras it will be possible to lend equipment from Aarhus University.
Full participation in the course and a successfull oral presentation will attract 10 ECTS.
