Meets with Folk-F510

This course is an introduction to multimedia techniques in the
collection, analysis, preservation, and presentation of ethnographic
data. Though it includes readings in the theory and history of
various practices, the course is largely hands-on in nature, with
both laboratory and field components. Additionally, the class will
visit several labs and studios on campus, and will host visits from
specialists in areas relevant to audiovisual production. Assignments
generally consist of exercises in documentation, post-production,
and analysis, with a final project that combines several methods
explored in class into a finished product.
