Listen to Dr. Jenny Chio’s recent lecture on ethnographic portraiture and filmmaking online.

As a Morphomata Fellow at the University of Cologne, Germany, Dr. Chio gave a public lecture on one of her current ethnographic film and research projects. The talk was titled “These Days, These Homes: An Ethnographic Portrait Film in Progress.” Dr. Chio addressed the question: What are the possibilities of portraiture in filmmaking, and how can biographical and ethnographic approaches be integrated in film practice and humanistic cultural research? Her talk discussed┬ápossibilities in the ethnographic and biographical representation of life experiences┬áby rethinking the methods and theories of documentary film-making, biography, life history, and ethnography.
