Dollar Street – A Culture Study Resource

by Larisa White of California, U.S.A.

I just stumbled upon a wonderful new resource for the study of world cultures, which is every bit as vivid and informative as are the “Families of the World” documentaries described on our Culture Study Documentaries page.  In this case, the resource is a web-site, which enables you to search sets of photographs of family life in different countries, for a range of different socio-economic levels within each of those countries, to get a feel “on your skin” of what life might be like to live in each of those places.  The web site can be found here:

The TED talk, in which its creator, Anna Rosling Rönnlund discusses the project’s creation and its potential uses, can be viewed here:
