syllabi-sharing

I am revising/updating my course on anthropology of socialist/post-socialist societies, and would be very grateful to receive sample course syllabi from colleagues teaching similar courses.  I hope to incorporate films to complement readings, and would be interested to hear about any that people recommend.

Many thanks
