Course examines ways in which visual representations are manifestations of cultural values, customs, and actions. By exploring films, photographs, and material arts of a variety of cultures, course encourages discussion of key anthropological theories and concepts. Students will investigate relationships between what is seen and what is known, between sign systems and the communication of meaning, and between societies and their representations of self and other. Readings in anthropological literature on arts and semiotics, films on cultures (their interactions and their objects), and graphic representations from a variety of human societies are included in the coursework.
