While feature films, documentaries and newsreels repeatedly show stereotypical illustrations of South Asian society, amateur films often contribute towards an ethnographic representation of it. This seminar considers different film aesthetics and identifies visual anthropological methods employed when learning about South Asian society.

This talk is part of the Film and History Seminar Series: Teaching Modern South Asian History with Film and Oral History series.
