AN 329 - Imaging & Imagining the Past: Visual Representation in Archaeology


Credits: 4
Imaging the past examines how peoples, places, and events of the past are presented to the public in visual format. Students will explore aspects of representation in anthropological discourse, such as gender, nationalism, and ethics in visual materials. Representation is readily interpreted as “truth,” but accuracy in these images varies widely. In hands-on image making, students will learn the craft of illustration and gain an appreciation for the range of objectivity and subjectivity that are ever-present in image production. By pairing image analysis and image creation, students deepen understanding of anthropological practice through honing observation skills and developing visual acuity. No previous artistic training is required.
Prerequisites: AN 101  and AN 102 .
