Course: GEOG 43 – Geographies of Latin America: Culture, Race, Nature and Power
Instructor: Sharlene Mollett
Assignment: Media Project
Groups of 4-5 students will present short video documentaries to the class covering a key concept and case study related to International Development in Latin America (see syllabus too). You may choose to cover a topic you have learned about through the class or a related topic of interest. These documentaries can include visual and audio material produced originally by students and/or collected from a range of sources. These must be edited together into 5-7 minute short films. The concepts and ideas presented in the videos should link to key themes discussed and presented during the term. Students should introduce their video with a brief (1-2 minute) discussion with a guide to viewing your film (what are you aiming for with this film?). These short documentaries will consist of a series of video narrated by students. We will end the presentation with a Q and A session and a discussion of the key themes discussed.
