Digital Video Scholarship: Discussions about Collecting and Using Field Work Video
Date

Main contributor
Cowan, Will
Summary
The primary examples will be video collected in the Ethnographic Video for Instruction and Analysis Digital Archive project but I won't really focus on technical issues. I plan to discuss issues about these videos involving Intellectual Property, the rights of the groups being filmed, what does "public access" mean and do we really want it for video used for scholarship, revealing "raw" data versus a finished product, the scholarly process of working with and presenting video vs. more traditional methods of scholarship, what does video on the internet mean for traditional pedagogy and is there even such a thing as video scholarship involving field video or other video shot by the scholar and can we arrive at a consensus about the value of such an endeavor. These issues have all been discussed as part of the EVIADA project at one time or another and the project team has attempted to solve some of them. I plan to share some of those solutions as well as pose some questions we don't have answers for yet.
