The Art of Not Freaking Out
On the first Friday of every month the American Media goes nuts! What they do is as predictable as clock work and just about as insightful. Their exercise in panic wouldn’t be such a big deal except that it tends to freak out Wall Street and unnecessarily confuses the American public.
Teaching Urban Documentaries, Part II
In Part I, I discussed documentary pedagogy and Richard Broadman’s Brownsville Black and White (2000) and offered that we consider the strengths and weaknesses of the medium and individual products. This part concerns Bullfrog Films four-part environmental series Edens Lost and Found, Biophilic Design, and I.M. PEI: Building China Modern.
Seeing How Black Lives Matter in a Super-Gentrified Neighborhood
Although there are many ways that neighborhoods such as my own, often described as Super-, or otherwise Gentrified (Halasz 2018). the fact remains that many of its residents fall on the liberal and left-leaning spectrum of American politics. It is also a place that has been an area accurately described as exhibiting Super Diversity (Vertovec 2007). Although the area is “diverse,” People of Color, mostly a diverse collection of Latino residents, tend to dominate in sections that are slowly undergoing displacement pressures as the rapid construction of high-rise “luxury” apartments continues unabated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Youth of Mahachkala
This film was made in frames of the sociological research project (Russian Scientific Foundation) “Fields of positive interethnic interactions and youth cultural scenes in the Russian cities”.
Call for Expressions of Interest in Conducting Regional Visual Ethics Workshops
The International Visual Sociology Association (IVSA) is launching an open-ended selection procedure to create a network of regional workshops or discussion groups that will become an arena for exchanging thoughts and ideas on research ethics in visual studies, which will ideally set the path toward a revised Code of Research Ethics, originally drawn up in 2009.
