Extra Credit Film / Lecture Review Option

(Please Note: For the Film / Lecture Review Option you must choose a feature-length film or a documentary relevant to the class that is not assigned in class.)

As mentioned in the "Note on Videos and Visual Anthropology" one of the four main characteristics of American Anthropology is fieldwork, and the next best thing to hopping a bus or plane is going to places and viewing subjects by film.

Although in Peoples and Cultures of Europe we view a substantial number of videos, in the area of Peoples and Cultures of Europe many hundreds of quality films exist--including feature films, documentaries, "shorts," interesting YouTube vignettes.

For the Film / Lecture Review Option choose an approved feature-length film or a documentary that is not assigned in class and review it, as you might for a column in your college newspaper.

Recommended "Optional" and "Supplementary" videos are listed on your Moodle page "Topic Presentations" sections. This same information is also available for the semester on the "Video Schedule" page.

 

Qualifying public lectures will be announced as opportunities arise. The public lectures extra credit option could include approved lectures available on-line from Open University type lectures availble from some universities.
