Point Park University's Confluence Psychology Alliance Presents: The 10th Annual Undergraduate Qualitative Research Conference!

Featuring Keynote Speaker SUZANNE BARNARD:

Suzanne Barnard will address collaborative ethnographic filmmaking as a practice that offers an alternative to contemporary documentary strategies aimed at reclaiming minoritaritan histories. Current documentary attempts to narrate or “give voice to” marginalized lives typically differ little, if at all, from the majoritarian filmmaking strategies historically associated with ethnocentric and clichéd forms of representation. She will discuss work (her own and other’s) oriented towards creation of “living archives” that function outside traditional uses of films as either instruments of law and order or reactionary responses to the “uneasy state” of our world. In so doing, she will draw from Quintin’s notion of a cinema “on the side of the subject,” a cinema guided by recognition that production practices and technologies are not exterior to their subjects (Cinemascope 25, Winter 2006). Awareness of the heterogeneous materializing forces of cinema’s tools and methods requires a vital exchange between what is happening in front of, behind, and with the camera. However, a minoritarian and future-oriented film practice cannot emerge simply from an amplified self-reflexivity or a new social consciousness, but rather must involve creating filmic means adequate to engaging a new people in a new situation of the world.
