Free B92 (featured link, vol 2, 1)
For ten years Belgrade-based Radio B92 has been a critical thorn in the flesh of the Milosevic regime. It provided a voice of urban opposition and an important source for independent information in the Serbian capital. B92 did not just bring radio, but also engaged in publishing, music production, TV and video production, an internet provider, a cultural centre, the Association of Independent Electronic Media, and so on. For many Belgraders, B92 represented an icon of their aspiration to create a city and a country that was open to the world. Over the years, B92 has been hindered from being heard on a number of occassions, but through live Real Audio streaming and satellite connections the station kept going even at the most difficult times. After ten years on the air, government officials - grabbing the occasion of the NATO air strikes on Yugoslavia - silenced the voice of this multiple award-winning station on 2 April 1999. This illegal government operation was replicated across Serbia, with often even tougher measures being taken against smaller stations in the province. Journalists were arrested and imprisoned, staff forcibly mobilised, and technical equipment confiscated, in an attempt to erase free speech from the Serbian map. This repression continues today. As B92 was turned into a regime station, a number of its journalists set up an alternative radio: B2-92, with a strongly developed internet-department. Their website, which includes a wealth of news, information, and links, can be found on: www.freeb92.net "Trust no one not even us... but keep the faith!" (B92)
Era (Experience Rich Anthropology) (featured link, vol 1, 1)
"This project is designed to enhance the teaching and learning of anthropology by encouraging teachers to help students explore the relationships between field data and analysis as reported in monographs and journal articles. Experience at UKC and elsewhere has shown that students value and benefit from being able to study field data as well as the results of its analysis. The project aims to disseminate elements, methods and sample teaching materials based on existing field data (field notes, film or photographic or other types of data) suitable for incorporation into current and new courses."
Sponsored by the (UK) Fund for the Development of Teaching and Learning (fdTL) and organized and hosted by the Centre for Social Anthropology and Computing at the University of Kent, the website provides (free of charge) a range of interactive teaching and learning materials focused on a variety of topics ranging from colonial ethnography and peasant social transformation to kinship and initiation. Put together by anthropologists in various UK universities, the emphasis is on critically exploring particular social and cultural situations. In addition to interactive materials, there are also accompanying guidance notes for both students and lecturers. A sampler CD and printed resource guide is also available.
