About this site

The goal of this site is to explore contemporary anthropology through essays, short articles, and opinion pieces written from diverse perspectives.  There is no single way to define the field, hence "anthropologies."  By presenting various viewpoints and positions, this site seeks to highlight not only what anthropology means to those who practice it, but also how those meanings are relevant to wider audiences.

Ryan Anderson is the founder and editor of anthropologies.  He is currently a graduate student in anthropology at the University of Kentucky.  He is writing up his dissertation about the politics of development in Baja California Sur.


Upcoming themes:

Student Debt (November 2013)
The politics of global warming and environmentalism (TBA)
Aging (TBA)
Culture (TBA)
An anthropology of the stuff we eat (TBA)
