World101x: Anthropology of Current World Issues is the fifth Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) from The University of Queensland to be released on the EdX platform. We want you to challenge your view(s) and ask the question how is anthropology changing the world and what can you learn from this? This course will allow you to better understand the world around you through utilising the anthropological lens. You will learn about the way in which anthropology as a discipline can shed new perspectives on current world issues, from indigeneity to migration and material culture. We want to challenge you to reflect on your own perspective when thinking about these issues, how you see the world and how we all engage with difference and sameness on a daily basis. We will interview notable anthropologists and follow some around the world and into their field to explore the issues, the people they work with and their place in the world.
