New Resource: Ethnographic Video Online

Posted on February 12, 2014.

HPU Libraries recently purchased a subscription to:

Ethnographic Video Online: Volume 1

Ethnographic Video Online: Volume 2

This streaming resource contains more than 500 hours of classic and contemporary documentaries related to the study of human culture and behavior, including previously unpublished footage from anthropologists and ethnographers in the field.

Ethnography, simply put, is the practice of observing and documenting human culture in order to better understand it. While the term is most commonly used in anthropology, other disciplines including sociology and communications use ethnography as a method, and many other disciplines can benefit from the first-hand research.

The documentary subjects include: Agriculture, Biology, Crafts, Economics, Employment, Engineering, Education, Environmental Science, Government, Women’s Health, Mental Illness, Music, Personal Finances, Psychology, Religion, Sociology, Theater, and more.

The addition of this guide goes along well with HPU Libraries other streaming resources, especially Films for the Humanites/Films on Demand. If you can’t find what you are looking for in one resource, be sure to check for your subject or title in the other streaming services. To learn more about streaming films at HPU Libraries, check out the Media Services Streaming Resources Guide.
