Full course description

This class will meet ONLINE on Thursdays from 6 pm - 8 pm eastern time.

This course is designed for students in the Certificate in Documentary Arts program or those who plan to enroll; it’s also suited to non-certificate students with a general interest in interdisciplinary traditions of documentary work, with an emphasis on twentieth-century practice. Students will be introduced to a range of documentary idioms and voices, including the work of photographers, filmmakers, oral historians, folklorists, musicologists, radio documentarians, and writers.

Jasmine Huff (pronouns: she, her, hers), an intuitive visual artist, writer, and craftswoman, started her career early. As the product of an artistic family, she exhibited and sold her art, photography, and jewelry in her family’s gallery, Huff Art Studio, when she was only five years old. At nineteen, she graduated from Salem College with a BA in Film and Media Studies. She continued her studies at Northwestern University where she graduated with an MFA in Documentary Media in 2016. With a desire to expand her versatile portfolio, Jasmine divides her time between exhibiting her work, freelancing, and teaching media courses.
