In the fall of 2019, Dr. Jeff Martin instructed the undergraduate course Anthropology 103 “Anthropology in a Changing World”. The course approached the broad question of how an anthropological approach allows us to think critically about climate change, students had the opportunity to work together on a group project that resulted in five-minute videos.
From topics ranging from fast fashion industries to food production processes, the videos incorporated key concepts introduced throughout the semester.
Working in tandem with their respective TAs, students applied course concepts and collaborative strategies that resulted in videos illustrative of students’ creative and critical thinking skills and the many ways that anthropology makes visible the connections between people, places, and processes.
The two videos featured here, one on climate change activism and one on the fashion industry’s environmental impact, are indicative of a wide range of thought provoking submissions!
