through the anthroscope, week three

anthropology not only has the power to reveal, explore, and explain other peoples and cultures, but it also allows us to gain insight into ourselves and our own culture. (one day, when i'm not so tired, we can have a nice long conversation about reflexive anthropology.)

today's clip may be difficult to watch — not because there's anything violent or trauma-triggering, but because it's about us. and watching ourselves —and then seeing things for what they really are, not through assumptions or personal beliefs— is very difficult.

 

so, if you have time today or tomorrow or next week, take a few minutes.

watch this.

see what you can see.

and then see what you think the anthropologist conducting the research is seeing.
