    TEDTalks videos about anthropology

    Follow the 3 links below to videos about the ideas of 3 contemporary anthropologists.

    • Louise Leakey: Digging for humanities origins
      A TEDTalk by Louise Leakey. Louise Leakey asks, “Who are we?” The question takes her to the Rift Valley in Eastern Africa, where she digs for the evolutionary origins of humankind — and suggests a stunning new vision of our competing ancestors. (Recorded February 2008 in Monterey, California. Duration: 15:35.)

    • Wade Davis on endangered cultures
      With stunning photos and stories, National Geographic Explorer Wade Davis celebrates the extraordinary diversity of the world's indigenous cultures, which are disappearing from the planet at an alarming rate.

    • Nina Jablonski breaks the illusion of skin color
      "Much of what we consider our humanity is imbued in our skin," Nina Jablonski tells us. This insight came to her in 1981, as she observed a jittery anatomy class warm to a cadaver only after cutting through its skin. As it turns out, marvels abound of this sweaty, hardwearing, social -- and underappreciated -- organ. Many are collected in her book, Skin: A Natural History, a look at what makes our skin unique and, perhaps, more important than we realize.
