Doing Anthropology

This is a great little video about current research by three anthropologists in MIT’s anthropology department. It’s a great answer to “so what the hell is anthropology?” because it shows anthropologists Actually Doing Fieldwork. Shocking that…
Every department should make one I think…

One thought on “Doing Anthropology

  1. I found this video nice quick view into the window of anthropology in action, and appreciated the time that was taken to make it available. It would, indeed, be nice to see more of these examples of anthropologists “working in the field”. Refreshing!
