EARED 6013 Media Images, Ethics, and Advocacy

This course examines selected representational works of art(primarily film & photography) to explore such issues pertaining to identity as transnationalism, gender, reflexivity, and cultural mediation. The class will view films in the genres of ethnography and transcultural filmmaking. Students will analyze works for their form, content, artists' intentions, and audience perception, and will develop a critical perspective of under- standing visual documents in terms of questions as authorship, intentionality, power and epistemology as a result of cultural encounter.
