This is just a really quick post but I couldn’t help writing something down!
I’m about to start the Spring semester in another 2 weeks and I’m pretty excited to be taking a course called Visual Anthropology. It’s my second semester in Hunter’s graduate Anthropology program and I’m looking forward to continuing the great time I’ve had thus far.
My professor for the class sent out the syllabus this week. As I did a quick preview of what’s in store for me, I’m glad to say it’s not as intimidating as I thought it would be. For one, all the classes are centered on watching documentary films and reporting on styles and cinematic elements, something I’m quite excited to learn about. Second, the class doesn’t seem to be “a book and several articles due a week” type of class. To which, at least this time around, I’m grateful. I’m also excited that one of the final projects is to write-up a proposal as if I am going to do a film for my future Masters thesis. I’m not quite sure how this will turn out but it’s got my mind immersed with a variety of ideas…i.e.–Evolution of Women in Death Metal??? A topic that’s been on my mind for a thesis for quite some time now.
