Making Anthropology Public

Statement of purpose: As a student of Anthropology            Anthropology is a field that is simply not receiving enough publicity.  As a student studying anthropology, I was given the advice to help put anthropology on the map.  The goal of this blog is to help people understand the importance and use of anthropology in a career, society, and lives of others.  People do not realize anthropology can add a better understanding to relationships, why people do what they do, cultural respect, recognizing similarities with different people, medical identification, documentation, acute observation, and more.  The world and history of the human race is all about ANTHROPOLOGY!

    I’m an anthropology major and whenever people ask what I study, more than half of them have no idea what it is. It’s sad really, because anthropology is such a useful field.

    I agree. I created a blog devoted to my anthropological focus of archaeology. I feel its important we use social networks, media, and technology regarding this major. This will hopefully increase interest in the subject as well as increase conversion between anthropologists.

    Take a look a my blog. It’s fairly new and experimental, but I think you’ll find it interesting.


    Long live Anthropology!
