IS 358 - Violence (3)

A multidisciplinary investigation into acts and relations of social and political violence. This investigation may focus within the following arenas: the social phenomena of violence and power; the extent of its moral justifiability, political legitimacy, and practical efficacy; the reality and responsibilities of perpetrators, victims, and others; and how communities are rebuilding and sustaining relations within various present realities of violence. Within this subject matter and these contexts, the course aims to enrich and expand video techniques as well as develop creative representational strategies. Throughout the course, students work to advance critical skills as viewers, makers, and readers of filmmaking within the context of course content. Students will work individually and in groups to explore the advocacy potential of the video production process as well as the final product.
