CFP: Ethnography and video
A session organized for the: Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction COUCH STONE SYMPOSIUM 2016
Nanaimo, British Columbia, Vancouver Island Conference Centre April 21-23 (Thursday pm to Saturday)
Presentations (either traditional or video-based) on “ethnography and video” are invited for a panel to be submitted to the 2016 Couch-Stone Symposium organizers. This session will examine (a) ways in which social worlds can be evoked and represented through video methods and/or (b) video-centered social worlds, as well as individual experiences and practices of/with video, can be understood through ethnographic approaches and interactionist concepts.
Submissions of short ethnographic video documentaries (ca. 15 minutes) are especially encouraged.
Submission Deadline: November 1, 2015
Submit a 500 word summary of your video (and preferably a link to it) or abstract of you paper presentation to firstname.lastname@example.org
P.S. I also welcome expressions of interest for a collaborative workshop on ethnographic film/video, to be held prior to the conference. The workshop would be open to both beginners and intermediate aspiring ethnographic film-makers.
