Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

We are being flooded by images to an unprecedented degree. Many of us create, share, and communicate through still images almost on a daily basis. For anthropologists, this raises various questions. Does the socio-cultural meaning of photographs change given their ready availability and sheer quantity? Is this process driven by technology, or rather, by social and cultural transformations? How does it affect our visual representation of the empirical realities we are interested in as researchers? What makes a "good" or "interesting" photograph in an ethnographic context?
The course is intended to function as a workshop in the literal sense and will be shaped by the students' needs and interests as much as by the teacher's input and experience. We will practice and reflect on various aspects of digital image creation and processing, experimenting with an understanding of the process of digital photography as a series of choices that technology tends to take away from our hands but that we can reclaim.
A major focus will be on hands-on training with self-provided cameras (preferably DSLRs) and various software tools, along with reflection on the influence of technology on the creation of and communication through images.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Course attendance, active participation in discussions and practical work, and carrying out of a self-defined project are required.
Students will be designing and carrying out a small anthropological research project using digital imaging methods, either individually or in groups. They will report on their research in the classroom and submit a final paper (in English or German) on their results and a reflection of the methods used.
