AN208 Visual Ethnography Block 3, 2019-2020
Visiting Professor Chantal Figueroa
Ethnography is a way of seeing the world used in anthropology; visual ethnography takes the visual as both technique of representation and mode of knowing. During this block, we will map the growing field of visual anthropology, focusing on theoretical and practical aspects related to photography in social research. Students will analyze ethnographic images to gain competence in the aesthetic and technical dimensions of image production while developing a critical lens. Students will develop their own visual projects as we explore the theoretical underpinning of visual ethnography. In this process, we will discuss critical issues in anthropology related to ethnographic evidence, knowledge production, reflexivity, ethics and aesthetics in the process of cultural presentation.
Dr. Figueroa (University of Minnesota, 2014) Research Interests: medical anthropology, Guatemala, violence prevention, social determinants of mental health, Latinx population, qualitative methods, gender equity, critical pedagogy.

Scene Study Workshop

by Arom Choi, CalArts

Cornerstone Screening Room

Monday, May 13

1:30 pm



We will read a 2-page length script excerpt and explore ‘What is the scene about?-What is the goal of the scene?’ through a table read and a group discussion. That would lead to a second discussion about how we could craft the scene to deliver what we have discovered together.



The goal is to practice the most important decision we have to make as a filmmaker: What is the MOVIE about? I’m not talking about the plot, it is more about the theme/emotionality/spine/arc of the story, and being able to build the personal relationship with the material-either it is written by ourselves or other people-because that is what determines the style, ultimately.

What do you do if it is cold and snowy outside? Come to a Matinee! “Coriolanus, or Helter-Skelter”, Theatre/Dance 8th block production in the Norberg Studio, Cornerstone Arts Center, Sat. May 11th at 3:00pm (matinee) No evening performance (you are welcome Llamapalooza).

A mashup of William Shakespeare and the Beatles, devised by Tom Lindblade and designed by Max Sarkowsky ’20, Gypsy Ames, & Heidi Eckwall.

“Shakespeare’s great tragedy is a meditation on failed political leadership and the senseless violence and corrosion left in its wake. The chaos of Coriolanus’ Rome is reflected in the helter-skelter fall of a dynasty and a society, showing what happens when personal ambition and grievance supplant ethical norms and moral order. A play for our times.”

Tickets available at the Worner Student Desk or at the door.
Free with CC ID, $5.00 general Public
