Master in Visual Anthropology
Department of Cultural Anthropology/ European Ethnology
at the Georg-August-University Göttingen.
Starting in winter term 2009/2010, the Department of Cultural Anthropology/ European Ethnology offers a Master’s program in Cultural Anthropology/European Ethnology with particular focus on Visual Anthropology: the Curriculum Visual Anthropology (CVA). Students who are interested please apply until May 15th 2009: http://www.uni-goettingen.de/de/103531.html
12 places will be reserved for the Master’s program Curriculum Visual Anthropology.
The CVA is offered as an integral part of a full-value Master of Arts in Cultural Anthropology/European Ethnology. Among the discipline’s theories, methods and range of topics students will concentrate on the representation practice of the ethnographic film.
Beside the introduction of theories, approaches and models of ethnographic films and based on film analytical and film historical considerations, in the first semester of the Master’s program students will especially practice the handling of video technology in several field studies. In the second semester, students will develop and present their own film draft which will be put into practice in the third semester. In the fourth semester the Master film should be produced as an integral part of the Master thesis. This process will be supervised by a film colloquium.
With this combination of Cultural Anthropology/European Ethnology and Visual Anthropolgy, this degree program provides the students with the necessary requirements for an employment in the whole range of the subject: from academic science to jobs in museums to film and media.
Courses will be taught in German.
