Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology: Visual Ethnography
Visual Ethnography is a specialisation of the master's programme Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology and is offerd by the Insitute of Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology. It is a one year master's programme of 60 EC (European Credits).
This specialisation draws upon audiovisual media’s unique ability to share insights about people and places on multiple registers – discursive, sensory, embodied, spatial, etc. Furthermore, with the growing prominence of digital media, Visual Ethnography offers an expanded framework for producing contemporary anthropological research. Multimodal approaches have become increasingly important components in ethnographic research for collaborating with research communities and expanding the range of scholarly outputs. Visual Ethnography highlights the vital role anthropology plays in the greater public.
