The face is one of our most important and expressive means of communication. It has been called "the organ of emotion," and indeed the face provides vital clues to our own feelings and to those of the people around us. The face is also an important source of identity, and perhaps the most powerful channel of nonverbal communication.
This outstanding video explores the expressive power of the human face. It examines a wide variety of facial properties and demonstrates the importance of each. Topics covered include facial expressions and nuances; true emotions and "masks"; culture and the face; facial identity; the importance of the face in law enforcement; how we "read" people's faces; the face as it ages; eye contact in human interactions; hair styles; beauty, both natural and manufactured; facial piercing; and myths and prejudices about facial attributes.
"The Human Face" was produced by Prof. Dane Archer, UC Santa Cruz, with the same insight, zest, and humor that have made all his videos on nonverbal communication among the most widely used and best-selling educational videos in recent years.
"Students will love this video! They'll laugh and be entertained; they'll argue and be intellectually stimulated. It bears the stamp of Dane Archer, a master scholar and communicator. The video is original, instructive, funny, inclusive, unobtrusively scholarly, and characteristically cross-cultural. It will be widely used in courses in psychology, sociology, anthropology, education, communication, theater, and criminal justice." -- Robert Rosenthal, Edgar Pierce Prof. of Psychology, Harvard University
"Dane Archer has done it again! The Human Face is just as exciting, witty, creative, and thought-provoking as his earlier videos. These videos are so popular with my students that they ask for them by name: 'Can we see another Dane Archer video?' Now I'm glad to be able to answer: 'Yes, here's The Human Face.' And here's a tip: Don't miss the last 30 seconds; they are hilarious." -- Robin Akert, Prof. of Psychology, Wellesley College
"A powerful teaching tool. It is engaging, witty, and funny. Students will love it! The narration is informative without becoming a lecture. One learns a lot without realizing that learning is taking place. In summary, an excellent job." -- Miron Zuckerman, Prof. of Psychology, University of Rochester
