Cultural Anthropology Podcast Using Audition (by Anneke Schwob)
In this module, groups of 4-5 students will use Adobe Audition to create podcasts detailing the various facets of a cultural institution (farmer’s market, gaming club, museum, etc.) that interests them. During their podcast, students will engage in a combination of non-fiction, journalism, and anthropological ethnography to report on their observations and conclusions about their chosen institution. The podcast should include observations, quoted audio from interview subjects as well as paraphrase, and, if appropriate, music and diegetic sound to help provide narrative shape and transitions. In creating these podcasts, students will strengthen their ability to participate in discourses within various social science and communications fields.
