Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The seminar explores socio-cultural particularities and characteristics of national film-making by examining different forms of narration as key cultural traits.
Based on selected case studies forms and concepts of narration are critically analysed and compared from cross-cultural, post-colonial anthropological and trans-disciplinary perspectives. The socio-cultural particularities and characteristics of national film-making as they have become part of global popular culture through the format of the TV-series and online-platforms are examined and their relation to already established modes of narration in the oral and textual domains is debated. The issue of representation of what is thought as a common cultural trait and by whom it is created is also of key interest.
The seminar's goal is providing theoretical-methodological knowledge to enable participants to gain insight and competences for independant further work in diverse topic areas of visual anthropology and popular culture.
This is an inter-active course. Apart from introductory input and impulse lecturing the seminar is based on intense communication, open discussion, active contribution and group work of all participants, and makes use of multi-media materials and seminal texts.
The seminar is conducted in English and is planned as on-site teaching, as each class is also on the moodle-platform it can be changed to on-line teaching at short notice.
