Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The purpose of the course is to provide students with an insight into the logic and approach of qualitative research using film. More recently, the possibilities for publishing sociological films have become established, such as the Online Journal Senate Journal (http://sensatejournal.com). The lecture will also cover the well-known The Sensory Ethnography Lab (SEL) at Harvard University, a project that promotes and develops film as a social science method (https://sel.fas.harvard.edu/index.html).
On the basis of students´own short film projects, basic principles of qualitative research with film are thought methodologically and practically. The participants plan their own empirical "small projects" on the basis of teaching inputs and the reading of current literature, on the basis of which use of different qualitative instruments is learned and finally a separate short film is created.
The curriculum teaches basic principles of editing, camera management, and social science film language.
