Description

Digital Anthropology Resources for Teaching (DART) is a collaboration between EPIC, AcIS, and the Anthropology Department here at Columbia, together with the Anthropology Department and Centre for Learning Technology at the London School of Economics.  This project is using innovative digital library technology tools to create electronic resources that will be used in teaching Anthropology in the two departments.

The project has also funded four postdoctoral research and teaching fellows in anthropology, two at each institution, who work as integral members of the project team.  The DART project is funded jointly by the NSF (in the US) and the Joint Information Systems Committee (in the UK).
