In 1964, newly-minted physician Stephen C. Joseph, just out of his internship, undertakes a two-year assignment as the Peace Corps Physician in Nepal. The job has two facets: responsibility for the health and medical care of a hundred young Peace Corps Volunteers scattered over the roadless hills and valleys along the uplift of the Himalayas, and “do whatever else you want to do in medicine.” Many lessons not learned in medical school challenge his ingenuity and inexperience: Learn to carry your office in a backpack trekking two-week circuits through the countryside visiting volunteers and holding impromptu clinics in isolated villages. Struggle with the contrasting responsibilities of being both the “Company Doctor” and the patients’ trusted confidant. Rely on your own judgment without medical peers or teachers within reach to guide you. Come to grips with the realities of Third World poverty, whose determinants are not easily remedied by Western medicine. Some of the lessons are baffling. Some are brutal and terrifying. Some are humorous, and some rewarding beyond measure. And Dr. Joseph finds what is to become a life-long heart’s desire: “doing what you can with what you have,” especially in the more-remote places of the world. Later, back again in the Third World, Dr. Joseph is part of a small international team starting a country’s first medical school, and has responsibility for the crowded “Under-Five’s Ward” in the medically-primitive conditions of the Capitol City’s hospital in Yaounde, Cameroun. But it is mysterious Chad, on the edges of the Sahara, to which he is most drawn, a little older and a little wiser, but just as restless. STEPHEN C. JOSEPH’s life in medicine has taken him to residential assignments in Nepal, Central Africa, Indonesia, and Newfoundland, with shorter stints in more than a score of countries in Africa and Asia. His home-based efforts have included Neighborhood Health Centers, and appointments as New York City’s Commissioner of Health, Dean of the University of Minnesota School of Public Health, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs, and senior positions with UNICEF and the US Agency for International Development. He is a former Chair of the American Public Health Association, a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and an elected member of the Institute of Medicine. His previous books include “Dragon Within the Gates: The Once and Future AIDS Epidemic,” and “Summer of Fifty-Seven: Coming of Age in Wyoming’s Shining Mountains.” He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with his wife, Elizabeth Preble.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Medien, Kunst, Musik, Note: 1,0, Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg, Veranstaltung: Fremdheit im ethnographischen Film, 7 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Robert Gardner, der 1925 in Massachusetts geboren wurde, interessierte sich bereits in frühester Kindheit für damalige Filme, wie etwa die von Charlie Chaplin. Zunächst fasziniert von der 16mm-Kamera seines Vaters, bekam er irgendwann eine eigene Kamera, und es begann für ihn die Überlegung, was es denn mit dieser einzufangen galt. Da Gardner sich selbst ein Verständnis von Film und Filmemachen aneignen musste - es gab kaum derartige Ausbildungsmöglichkeiten - verschlang er zunächst die Filme, die in den damaligen Kinos gespielt wurden. Gardner sah das Filmemachen als eine Art Kunstform an und umso kunstvoller erschien es ihm, wenn es Filmemachern gelang, Emotionen und Stimmungen der realen Welt in Form eines Films zu konservieren. Diese reale Welt zu bewahren, liegt - so zitiert Gardner den englischen Dichter Philip Larkin - "aller Kunst zugrunde." Es kristallisierte sich also schnell ein Interesse an nicht-fiktiven Filmen heraus. Gardner schreibt in dem Text "Der Impuls zu bewahren", dass er Filme, wie "The private life of a cat" - von Maya Derens - noch immer am meisten liebt, denn es gelang ihr in diesem Film, Aktualität statt Phantasie in den Vordergrund zu stellen, was Gardner nachhaltig beeindruckte. Er beschreibt Filme wie diesen als visuell eindrucksvoller und als sehr viel herzbewegender als fiktive und surrealistische Werke. Mit Hilfe des Films bzw. der Kamera war es Gardner nun also möglich, seine eigenen Empfindungen, bezüglich eines Teils der äußeren realen Welt, wiederzugeben, wenn es auch ihm gelingen würde, sie mit der Kamera einzufangen.

This extraordinary handbook was inspired by the distinctive concerns of anthropologists and others who film people in the field. The authors cover the practical, technical, and theoretical aspects of filming, from fundraising to exhibition, in lucid and complete detail—information never before assembled in one place. The first section discusses filmmaking styles and the assumptions that frequently hide unacknowledged behind them, as well as the practical and ethical issues involved in moving from fieldwork to filmmaking. The second section concisely and clearly explains the technical aspects, including how to select and use equipment, how to shoot film and video, and the reasons for choosing one or the other, and how to record sound. Finally, the third section outlines the entire process of filmmaking: preproduction, production, postproduction, and distribution. Filled with useful illustrations and covering documentary and ethnographic filmmaking of all kinds, Cross-Cultural Filmmaking will be as essential to the anthropologist or independent documentarian on location as to the student in the classroom.

This book addresses most of the environmental impacts of sand mining from small rivers The problems and solutions addressed in this book are applicable to all rivers that drain through densely populated tropical coasts undergoing rapid economic growth. Many rivers in the world are drastically being altered to levels often beyond their natural resilience capability. Among the different types of human interventions, mining of sand and gravel is the most disastrous one, as the activity threatens the very existence of river ecosystem. A better understanding of sand budget is necessary if the problems of river and coastal environments are to be solved.
