Kavita Dasgupta on the Ethnography Course

Film by Kavita Dasgupta, Master's Student, Cultural Anthropology and Ethnology. See description below film.

The Ethnography course for Masters students in the Cultural Anthropology and Ethnology Department was an interesting and apt mix of practice and theory. The chance to hone our skills in different methods of conducting ethnography before we actually hit the field was a very pleasant surprise and I thoroughly enjoyed 'dirtying my hands'! As a part of my final presentation, I have made a film on the three aspects of this course which spoke to me. A field that is not bound by geography or time, an ethnographer who is reflexive and finally experiencing, learning and analysing through ones senses. My film brings to you an engagement with Pelle Svanslös park in Uppsala, through sight and sound.
