Contents

Using specific ethnographic research as their basis, anthropologists develop theories that seek to explain similarities and differences in cultural phenomena around the world. This theorizing that builds on specific ethnographic data to develop broader, more generalized theories is called ethnology. In this course, you will encounter a variety of different ethnographic examples in readings, films, and lectures. We will use these examples as an entry point into the theories that

socio-cultural anthropologists have developed to try to explain and to understand human beings in their diversity
