This project-based course is designed to prepare graduate and advanced undergraduate students to film digital stories and oral histories with people who have made significant contributions toward cultural practice through music scenes, public scholarship, and social justice work.  Participants will utilize a feminist studies framework to explore the politics of representation critically and creatively and have the opportunity to participate and document the Women Who Rock Conference, March 2-3, 2012. 

Part I in this two-part series of short courses focuses on hands-on audio and visual technical skills building, production techniques, and ethical methods of producing oral histories and short-form digital media genres. Participants will learn compositional methods, technical competencies, and situated, ethical approaches.

Open to graduate and advanced undergraduate students with permission from the instructor. Please contact Angelica Macklin prior to enrolling in this course.
