We would like you to study unemployment with an anthropological approach, especially an (experimental) visual anthropological approach. The basic idea is to make visible something that might be taken for granted to be seen, or not noticed because too insignificant or not understood as relevant.
Anthropological approach: main point here is to look at the level of experience, and try and reach the understanding and thinking, the sense, meanings and concepts of those you are studying.
Visual: using visual tools in doing the research – and/or using visual tools to present the findings?
For 8.1. each group needs to come up with few sentences describing their ideas. We ask you to refer to some anthropological idea, concept – and some idea or concept concerning unemployment. And you should think of
- What is it you want to study? What do you want to find out?
- How will you study it?
- What form would your report of the findings be?
