Where are you studying?Cultural Anthropology, issues of racism in public education in the US and Latin America (Brazil and Colombia specifically). But I'm still completing my coursework now, so I'm doing work in archaeology, forensic anthropology, and linguistics now. :help:

I always wondered if anthropologists considered their field as a scientific field. WOuld you call it that, or more like an anedoctal/observational field?

WOuld you call it that, or more like an anedoctal/observational field?It depends, in the United States Anthropology has 4 subfields: Biological, Archaeology, Linguistic, and Cultural. Biological anthropologists, who do work in population genetics, human evolution, primatology, medical anthropologists etc. those people are definitely scientists. I would also argue that archaeology is a scientific discipline, as well as linguistics. Some cultural anthropologists specifically see their work as falling within the humanities (the more postmodern types), while there are other cultural anthropologists who believe in working with qualitative and quantitative data and believe their work to be scientific. For the most part though, most anthropologists consider themselves to be scientists.
