There are very few colleges, universities, and art schools that offer courses in photoethnography. Most of the field of visual anthropology is focused on visual analysis and not production, and the few visual anthropologists who do production do ethnographic film. So photoethnography is a minority of a minority position. Here's what I've found to be available:
- Yale College: Anthro 402 - Visual Anthropology (Nakamura)
- University of Florida: Visual Anthropology (Burns)
- Union College (NY): Visual Anthropology: Photography and Representation (Gmelch)
Courses in visual anthropology in general:
- Carleton College : Visual Anthropology
- Mills College: Visual Anthropology (Anderson)
- Swarthmore College: Visual Anthropology (Diaz-Barriga)
- University of Kent at Canterbury (UK): http://lucy.ukc.ac.uk/Courses/SE520/
- University of Vermont: Intro to Visual Anthropology (Bloch)
- University of Virginia: Visual Anthropology (Sapir)
Any additions or corrections to this lists would be greatly appreciated.
