"The Curve"

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 Anthropology of Food we view a substantial number of videos, in the area of Food and Culture many hundreds of quality films exist—including feature films, documentaries, "shorts," interesting YouTube vignettes.

For the Film / Lecture Review Option choose an approved (by your instructor) 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.

Check with your instructor for feature-length films and major documentaries (that qualify for Extra Credit).
