ANTH 319 - Media Ethnography

Semester Offered: Second Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4HU, CD, WINT

As social, political, and cultural worlds are constituted with and through media, this course asks: how can we use media and ethnography to better understand and interpret our social lives? Grounding in the history, practices, tenets, and sensibilities of ethnography, we will focus on how to use ethnography to study media representations, production, and consumption, as well as how to use scholarly media production to interpret social worlds. We will explore different types of media ethnography including performance ethnography, ethnographic discourse analysis, and hashtag ethnography. Students will have the opportunity to produce media projects, such as short films and podcasts.
