Doing Anthropology
 



Cultural anthropology is a social science that explores how people understand, and act in, the world. But what, exactly, do cultural anthropologists do? How do they approach their research? In this short film, three members of the School's Anthropology section, Stefan Helmreich, Erica James, and Heather Paxson, talk about their current fieldwork.
