Program Description:

The Departments of Anthropology and Cinema Studies offer a specialized joint course of study leading to a New York State Certificate in Culture and Media for NYU graduate students who are also pursuing their M.A. or Ph.D. degrees in Anthropology or Cinema Studies. The program's philosophy takes a broad approach to the relationships between culture and media in a number of domains, including ethnographic filmÆs significance for the fields of anthropology and cinema/media studies; problems in representation of cultures through media; the development of media in indigenous, Diaspora, and non-Western communities; the emerging social and cultural formations shaped by new media practices; and the political economy shaping the production, distribution, and consumption of media worldwide. This graduate program provides a focused course of graduate studies integrating production with theory and research.
