The master’s program in visual and media anthropology focuses on the relationships between culture and media in a number of areas, such as problems in representation of culture and gender through media; the significance of ethnographic films and photography for social and cultural anthropology; the development of media in indigenous, diaspora, and non-Western communities; the influence of film/media on cultures; and visual and media anthropology in virtual cultures and social networks.
