Ethnography and Documentary Production in the Border Region.

Three semester hours. (FL)

This course will develop students’ critical skills of film analysis through the practical application and experience of creating a film and manipulating digital media and equipment. The course will introduce and prepare students to use digital media as a tool in research, and as a method of presenting research outcomes. While the aims are primarily to enable students to acquire and apply practical skills, by doing so this course contributes to their formation as ethnographers in the Border region. It demystifies the process of digital filmmaking, and opens new ways of reading and understanding visual ethnographies (particularly documentary and ethnographic film).
