VIS STD (S19)290C  VS THEORY&METHODSBETANCOURT, R.
This course examines canonical texts and explores current directions in Visual Studies. Students will develop the critical skills necessary to appreciate how the approaches that define Visual Studies complicate traditional models of defining and analyzing visual images. Course texts provide an introduction to theories about Visual Studies and methodologies of how to apply those theories to the visual world.
VIS STD (S19)295  ETHICS OF PHOTOGRAPHYGLEBOVA, A.
This seminar is an introduction to the theory of photography with a focus on the way the medium’s ethical potential has been probed, questioned, and adulated over the course of its relatively short existence. While we will concentrate on canonical texts and recent scholarship, episodes from the historical avant-garde will also make an appearance, and our objects of study will range from vernacular photography to large-scale art photography to photojournalism, and, whenever appropriate, photography’s intermedial relatives.  Some of the questions considered by the seminar will include: What ethical purchase, if any, is possible in the face of photography’s superabundant proliferation since its inception? Can photography offer political agency to the spectator or the subject? How do error and chance, photography’s innate qualities, play into this? If photography’s “burden of depiction” is the cornerstone of its (positive or negative) relationship to ethics, what happens with the arrival of the digital?

In tandem with recent texts on the materiality of the photograph and the photographic archive, this seminar will also involve work with photographs and photographic books in the UCI Library Special Collections. Throughout, we will push the texts we read against photographic objects, thinking theory with and through looking.

VIS STD (S19)295  MULTIMODAL ANTHROVARZI,R
This past year anthropologists Collins, Durington, and Gill published an important call to arms in their manifesto "Multimodality: An Invitation." The call coincided with the inauguration of a multimodal section in the journal of American Anthropology – but in no way does this imply that this process or practice is a new one. Anthropologists have been doing multi-modal anthropology since Franz Boas began working with wax cylinder recording and his star student Zora Neale Hurston started experimenting with text. Anthropology has always been an inter-disciplinary field lending its methods to fields as diverse as Science and Technology Studies and Studio Art, and being influenced by these fields in turn. This course will explore the history and contemporary practices of multimodal anthropology, from sound to sensory studies, (to give a small example), allowing students to engage their research data while experimenting with new forms. It will allow a space for process, the time and the permission to play, to move material in and out of various forms until it finds its home, which may entail a form or function wholly unexpected even by its own author. The course encourages multi-disciplinary and to that end is open and encourages graduate students in any field to join us.
