ANTH 133 PZ -Indians in Action


Institution: Pitzer

Description: Understanding of the indigenous cultures in the Americas have been shaped profoundly by cinematic images. Representations of and by Native Americans have much to say not only about the people they depicture but also about the complex relationships between them and national societies. This class studies a selection of iconic films: including ethnographies, mainstream narrative films, as well as the work of indigenous film and videomakers. Our focus will be on understanding the constructed nature of these cultural artifacts as they become important elements in the production of history and historical agents. This course considers that what is put into images is as important as what is left out.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
