Anthropology in Practice
Anthropology in Practice provides ethnographic insight into daily life events in an urban setting. Pulling information from direct observation and media stories, this blog draws connections between beliefs and behaviors, investigating everything from the use of umbrellas to baseball. Anthropology is not about wearing a hat and carrying a whip. It is not about robbing tombs or living in desolate conditions. It is about finding the connections that help us relate to each other and navigate our changing world.
