The Global City and Media Ethnography

MCC GE 2166-001 (2922)

Mo/Tu/We/Th 4:55 pm – 7:40 pm

 May 27, 2014  Jun 14, 2014

 Professor Allen Feldman

Global urbanism harbors and mobilizes  multiple actualities, designed and imagined space, performative inscription and collective memory, embodied sensation and digital simulacra. This seminar engages participant-sensation, observant participation and the affective fabric of techno-mediatic forms of life. Our terrain of inquiry is sensory-centered research through visual, sonic and haptic culture and media archeologies. The research process will focus on the sensory envelope of the self and the interface of a media skin shaped by technics and symbolic practice. The curriculum is aimed at M.A. and PhD students in the humanities, the arts and social sciences seeking practice-led skills at the intersection of aesthetics and evidence-based multi-media inquiry. Our practice-led pedagogy empowers self-reflexive, contextual and critical understandings of mediatic and sensory subjectivity in the creative process of research, in post-research curation-exhibition, dissemination and archival performance.

Bio: Allen Feldman  has conducted ethnographic fieldwork in the emergency zones of Northern Ireland and South Africa and among the homeless infected and affected by HIV/AIDS in New York City.  He teaches visual culture, performance studies and philosophy of media at NYU. Through numerous publications he pioneered the political ethnography of embodiment and the senses. He has designed and team-taught practice-led seminar-clinics with documentary film-makers, photographers, installation and digital artists in Budapest, Paris, Ljubljana and Dublin, and has written exhibition catalogue essays on immersion, web and installation art for shows and on-line exhibitions in New York City and Lisbon.
