Ethnographic Video Online is a streaming video collection that supports the study of the diversity of human cultures and behavior across the world. The included video is produced by many of the most influential documentary filmmakers and has wide applicability across many disciplines. Hundreds of hours of historical coverage ranges from the early work of Robert Flaherty in 1922 to the most current anthropological films from every region of the world and new material continues to be added.
Search for videos by keyword or browse by region, cultural group, people, subjects, date, ethnographer, and more. Each video includes a full transcript, can be browsed by viewing thumbnail images that can be adjusted to provide access at different timed intervals, and many include a detailed study guide.
UVM users can register to take advantage of advanced features such as the ability to create short clips from longer works (great for showing clips in class or embedding into Blackboard!), create play lists, and more.
