prepare for your initial post, review the "Areas of Anthropological
Study" section on the Careers in Anthropology page from the American Anthropological Association.
Choose two of the ways anthropologists are working outside of an academic
context. In your initial post, be sure to do the following:
which two types of nonacademic work you selected.
why you selected these two work environments. (What stood out to you about
how anthropology is used in this context?)
what an anthropologist does in each of the work environments you chose.
on how you will apply what you have learned in this course to your everyday
observations and interactions, using specific examples to help your peers
Response Guidelines: For your responses to the initial posts of at least two
of your peers, look first for those peers who selected different types of
nonacademic work than you selected. Did your peers accurately describe what
anthropologists do in those work environments? How might the anthropologists
in those work environments practice the principles of cultural relativism?
