...your Mom is a cultural construct
|a place for anthropological rants, reason, and rapture.
Anthropology is a curious beast. It is essentially the study of people from biological, cultural, linguistic, and archaeological perspectives. Since humanity is incredibly diverse, the field of anthropology is as well. My particular passion is medical anthropology. My research interests include: design, consumerism, disability, reproductive health, medical pluralism, sexuality, and stigma.
I write this blog for two main reasons. One, it helps me figure out my own ideas. I don't pretend to be an expert on everything I discuss here, just trying to promote a little tolerance and understanding from the anthro perspective. And two, I firmly believe that social scientists are obligated to share their research. The findings are important and should be designed for public consumption.
