The Captivating and Curious Careers of Anthropology

Discovering the bow of a ship underneath the World Trade Center, helping corporations understand how people's identities show up in technology – or a think tank looking at social relationships in the workplace, working with gangs in East LA, a death investigator helping police solve crimes – it seems anthropology is everywhere these days.

And that’s no coincidence because anthropologists ARE everywhere these days, studying the biological, cultural, linguistic, and archaeological aspects of what it means to be human.

These videos are just two pieces of a five part video series to showcase who we are, what we do, and how we add value to society. The full series including segments on archaeology, forensic anthropology, and socio linguistics can be accessed in the AAA store. Videos are free for AAA members and available at a modest charge for non-members.
