Paper long abstract:

Visual Ethnography Basics (VEBweb) is a web-based teaching package being developed by Visual Cultural Studies at the University of Tromsø. Combining a database with text, film clips, films, photos and a history of ethnographic film timeline, the package attempts to provide access to ways of understanding and analysing ethnographic films. The systaem is ready for testing in the Autumn term 2008 and the EASA workshop will be an opportunity to present a kind of pilot test. This presentation will thus take you through the ideas behind, and the structurethe and design of, the teaching package and discuss some of the compromises one has had to accept in developing it.
