Ethnicities Under (Visual) Construction: Workshop on Communication Analysis

Date: January 8 - 9, 2009

Organizer: Sebastian Thies (Bielefeld)

As part of the Inter-American Research Group entitled E pluribus unum?-Ethnic Identities in Processes of Transnational Integration in the Americas, the workshop 'Ethnicities Under (Visual) Construction' analyzed the construction, performance and the mise en scène of ethnic identities in film and video material. We initiated a broad interdisciplinary dialogue on methodologies from film studies, cultural studies, visual anthropology, and linguistics (communication analysis). These were complemented by workshop talks with various directors including the well-known indigenous filmmakers Yolanda Cruz (Mexico) and Tracey Bonneau (Canada).
