Audiovisual and Digital Ethnography is a state-of-the-art introduction to this dynamic and growing subject. The authors explain its fundamental aspects in a clear and systematic way. The chapters cover topics including:
- learning to see and listen in the field and the role of sensory attention
- the mediation of the senses
- doing anthropological fieldwork with video
- observational filmmaking
- ethnographic drawing
- multimodal anthropology
- digital ethnography
- interactive documentary
- the ethics and management of audiovisual and digital data.
The result is a much-needed, up-to-date and concise guide to both the fundamental skills required for audiovisual and digital ethnographic production and the essential theoretical knowledge relating to this. It will be particularly useful for students and scholars in the fields of Anthropology, Sociology, Cultural Studies, Social Sciences, Media, Design, Art Practice and Sound Studies.
