MIT OpenCourseWare: Anthropology

MIT OpenCourseWare: Anthropology

MIT has been receiving praise from around the world for their OpenCourseWare initiative, which they started several years ago. Interested self-learners and educators have appreciated the ability to look at lecture materials and syllabi from all over the world, and they have received testimonials from Malaysia, the United Kingdom, and Mexico. One of the subjects that they cover is anthropology, and visitors to this particular segment of the OpenCourseWare site will find a host of resources from different courses taught in this discipline at MIT. Currently, there are resources for about twenty undergraduate and graduate courses, including "Anthropological Theory", "Identity and Difference", and "Ethnic and National Identity". Visitors can look over lecture notes, syllabi, and other items. Finally, they can also sign up for an RSS feed as well.
