The first book entirely devoted to the practice and ethics of the emerging methodology of ethnocinema, this volume brings vividly to life not only the Sudanese young women with whom the author has collaborated for two years, but her own struggles as researcher, teacher and intercultural fellow traveller. A superb resource for anyone interested in conducting their own ethnocinema research project, the contents will be welcomed too by classroom teachers who recognise a need for alternative pedagogies within diverse classrooms, and peripatetic researchers and students who search for authentic representations of their own experiences within the academy and education system.

With access to online filmed material included, this publication is part handbook and part theoretical treatise framing a new creative ethnographic methodology. One of a rare breed of books covering the visual research techniques that are gaining traction in the academic community, it also introduces ground-breaking intercultural research into Sudanese women who have resettled in the West. Functional as pedagogic material in university and high school classrooms, this package has broad appeal in the academic and educational sectors.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The book Ethnocinema: Intercultural Arts Education is a description and evaluation of the ethics and methodology of participatory media production. ... This book is a most valuable tool for both pedagogy and art research." (Martin Mhando, Australasian Review of African Studies, Vol. 35 (1), June, 2014)

"This book has a cache for professors deeply invested in the practice of critical pedagogy who want to explore the possibilities of teaching and researching with collaborative video production and dissemination. ... Harris so eloquently explains the challenges and responsibilities of sharing the camera in collaborative intercultural video production. Harris provides a practical and thoughtful meditation on collaborative research using video that offers a road map for researchers considering the challenges and opportunities of such a methodology." (Daniel Keyes, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 57 (50), December, 2012)
