Faculty Presentations 1:30pm~3:30pm
Presenter: Maris Gillette (Anthropology)
Title of the presentation: Digital Video and Sensory Ethnography
Description: Using DV for an anthropology of the senses
Presenter: Vicky Funari (Independent College Programs)
Title of the presentation: Advanced Documentary Production
Description: Vicky Funari's Advanced Documentary Production course offered a nuts-and-bolts approach to the documentary art form. Students came into the class with ideas for ambitious short documentaries, and they produced these and other short films during the semester. We built upon the practical and theoretical knowledge students had learned in intro-level film/media classes (Funari's "Truth and Documentary" and "Documentary Video Production" courses, as well as other Tri-Co courses with media production and editing components). The course also offered students a way to further explore their work in scholarly disciplines through the language of film. The presentation will show some of the results of the students' work and pose questions about how to teach the documentary medium.
Presenter: James Krippner (History)
Title of the presentation: Introduction to Historical Documentary
Description: Last year Jim Krippner added a new assignment to History 114: Origins of the Global South. Students worked in teams organized by themes to produce a short (not to exceed five minutes) historical documentary film. This exercise allowed them to present their ongoing research concerns visually in a manner far more engaging than the “powerpoint” presentations that this exercise replaced. It also heightened their awareness of the selectivity involved in any historical representation. His presentation will discuss this projects contributions and limitations.
Presenter: Imke Brust (German)
Title of the presentation: German Short Film
Description: This year Imke Brust asked her students in “Elementary German” to produce a 5 minute short film in German as their final project. Students worked in groups of two and created three scripts in German for the film. While she helped them revise their German screenplay, she only made suggestions about the visual content. The final film had German voice-over and English subtitles. Students had 3 thematic options and were also allowed to create a narrative film:
(1) How does language / German become alive for you?
(2) How can learning another language help fighting prejudice, racism, and discrimination?
(3) Cooperate with Curt Cacioppo’s students and Markus Baenzinger’s art students about the work they are producing in connection with Franz Schubert’s Winterreise.
She will discuss the results of the assignment.
