Modules for teaching the introductory cultural anthropology course.

Authorized users only:


Handbook on Ethical Issues in Anthropology

Added 10/05/2006
Excellent resource for faculty preparing lectures on ethics in anthropology, for more advanced students preparing to do anthropological research, and for students at any level to explore ethical issues through interesting case studies.

Kinship and Social Organization

Added 10/05/2006
A rich tutorial site that teaches students basic principles of kinship across societies using colorful diagrams, photos from cultures around the world, profiles of example societies with different types of kinship systems, and a great deal of text divided carefully into small chunks so students aren't overwhelmed on each page. Excellent resource, but very detailed, so may provide too much information for introductory students. Could send students through only part of the site if desired.

Mapping Queer Meanings

Added 10/07/2006
Site examining homosexuality across cultures and times. Made by an LGBT activist, so focused not only on showing images and text from the past but also on countering stereotypes about LGBT people. Includes lots of images and discussion of many common stereotypes, along with personal twist of how they make LGBT people feel and how the community can challenge them. Useful for LGBT studies in any discipline.
