  • Provides the largest, most comprehensive resource for the study of human culture and behavior- more than 750 hours and 1,000 films at completion. The collection covers every region of the world and features the work of many of the most influential documentary filmmakers of the 20th century, including interviews, previously unreleased raw footage, field notes, study guides, and more. Thematic areas include: language and culture, kinesthetics, body language, food and foraging, cooking, economic systems, social stratification and status, caste systems and magic, music and the arts, culture and personality, and sex, gender, and family roles. A core collection for use across the curriculum - from introductory anthropology and sociology courses to advanced interdisciplinary courses in women's studies, economics, and international studies.
