Everyday Anthropology is an educational nonprofit working to humanize science, cultural history, and the humanities through connecting you to the rich cultural histories underlying everyday objects and locations. Beyond our own publications, Everyday Anthropology is sourcing funding for low-income anthropology students in the United States and across Africa to obtain their first field experiences.
Built on the four fields approach to anthropology, pretty much nothing is out of the scope of interest, because anthropology is kind of a ridiculously large umbrella that encompasses the sub disciplines of: Biological Anthropology, Archaeology, Cultural Anthropology, and Linguistic Anthropology.
And then, of course, there is a whole lot that doesn’t quite fit, which you can find in the Anthrospinning section.
The blog feed is where you will find every post we have made, in reverse chronological order, regardless of topic. It’s a pretty good place to start if you’ve either never been here, or if you’re here regularly and are just wanting to see what’s new.
Not all schools teach a four-fields approach, and my approach isn’t any more valid and I don’t pretend that four fields is a universal thing. But it’s how I’m trained, and it encompasses my interests and allows me to explore all the things without having to say I’m anything other than an anthropologist. And so here we are.
