Abstract


The following is a first person historical and critical account of the development of undergraduate and graduate courses of study in visual anthropology (the anthropology of visual communication) at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. USA. It discusses not only the courses offered but the activities surrounding the program that students could avail themselves and brief biographies of some of the graduates. Finally there is a critical comparison of this program with so-called visual anthropology offerings in the U.S. as well as Europe.
