Days of ethnographic film 2024

Using visual approaches in student research: regional parallels

The biennial seminar format of the Days of Ethnographic Film aims to deepen reflection on topics and approaches in visual ethnography and visual anthropology. The focus is on video productions that have been created as part of student research projects, with an emphasis on reflecting on experiences in the application of various methodological approaches in visual anthropology. Works and short films will be presented that were created during the course of studies at the Department of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology in Ljubljana and Zagreb as well as at the University of Münster. The seminar includes a presentation of the book Thinking with a Camera. Theories and Practices of Visual Ethnography (Tanja Bukovčan, Aleksej Gotthardi Pavlovsky, 2023).

The event is organized by the Slovenian Ethnological Society, the Institute of Slovenian Ethnology ZRC SAZU and the Department of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Ljubljana.

The event will take place on Friday, March 29, in the Prešeren Hall ZRC SAZU (Novi trg 4, Ljubljana). More information about the program and the authors can be found in the festival’s catalogue.
