Visual Anthropology

Video materials used in class illustrate many topics covered in this course. Consider these presentations similar to lab sessions, that is, watch them carefully and critically rather than simply watch another movie or video. The exams will include these materials, and it will be assumed that you have paid critical attention to them.


It is generally best to watch the videos after you have looked at the slides and reading material(s).


Dates and videos/films may change.

PLEASE NOTE:

Some contracts and licenses restrict distribution to current University of MInnesota students, faculty, and staff.
Some video offerings are currently being re-negotiated with providers.

Some films require your Virtual Private Network (VPN) (UMD) to be turned on if you are accessing films from off-campus.


In addition, with some videos (and other copyright materials from the UMD Library and IT) you will need a @d.umn.edu e-mail address to access the content.

If you have transferred to Duluth from another UMN campus, you may request to update your e-mail domain to Duluth.
