The media feeds us millions of images every day. But few consumers take the time to decode these visual forms of information. Visual anthropology gives us the tools to “readjust” our eyes and examine the relationship between culture and visual representations. Our six-week course will be dedicated to exploring gender, race, and the individual through various visual media such as film, photography, and the internet. Activities will include a trip through the Museum archives, critiques of films and popular travel magazines, and the use of digital cameras to capture both photographs and film in an ethnographic setting.
