Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This short course aims at the examination of different livelihood strategies that families must undertake in order to overcome sociocultural vulnerability in several historical contexts. By taking audio-visual production both as documentary repertoire and as research methodology, we will discuss different cultural narratives about vulnerability and family life within larger sociocultural settings in different countries and historical contexts.
By so doing, we will discuss upon the ability of certain media and film genres (beyond the well proven aptitude of filmic languages to tackle with the representation of reality -even by using fiction narratives to such end-) to act as social transformation agents within pervasive scenarios of vulnerability.

Goals
1- To enhance insights into family life and coping strategies within sociocultural vulnerability frameworks through filmic narratives.
2- To consider the relevance of audio-visual materials (specifically filmmaking) as cultural operators and transformation agents.
3- To actively participate in constructive group discussions

Methods
Lecturing, Short screenings, classroom discussions.
