The Vermont Folklife Center is pleased to offer a hybrid online course grounded in ethnography as an approach and set of methods for understanding and representing human experience in a Summer Institute August 2-13. The course content will present strategies and teach skills for community-based learning and inquiry that centers on ethical and collaborative engagement. The course includes an introduction to digital media making, with a critical lens on documentary work and the ethics of representation.
The course content is organized around synchronous and asynchronous sessions online (approx. 90 minutes each) that practice skills in ethnographic documentation. Over the course of 10 days, participants will also hear from guest speakers on the professional application of ethnographic approaches and methods, and will receive individual feedback on their interview and digital story projects. Participants will gain a set of tools for developing vibrant and ethical relationships with community partners through interdisciplinary thinking and application.
