Short abstract: This panel looks at the modes and impacts of ethnographic filmmaking across the disciplines. We seek to explore how methodological approaches and filmmaking techniques create interpretative spaces through which audiences actively contribute to re-imaginations of complex realities.

  • Becoming a mother, becoming an ethnographic filmmaker. Performativity and identity making in feminist visual ethnography as emotional thick description
    Author: Rosie Reed Hillman (UWE University of Lincoln)

  • Putting the “I” Back in IR (International Relations): Understanding China Through an American Family’s Experience
    Author: William Callahan (London School of Economics)
