Ask Anything Wednesday - Economics, Political Science, Linguistics, Anthropology

Welcome to our weekly feature, Ask Anything Wednesday - this week we are focusing on Economics, Political Science, Linguistics, Anthropology

Do you have a question within these topics you weren't sure was worth submitting? Is something a bit too speculative for a typical /r/AskScience post? No question is too big or small for AAW. In this thread you can ask any science-related question! Things like: "What would happen if...", "How will the future...", "If all the rules for 'X' were different...", "Why does my...".

Asking Questions:

Please post your question as a top-level response to this, and our team of panellists will be here to answer and discuss your questions.

The other topic areas will appear in future Ask Anything Wednesdays, so if you have other questions not covered by this weeks theme please either hold on to it until those topics come around, or go and post over in our sister subreddit /r/AskScienceDiscussion , where every day is Ask Anything Wednesday!

Anthropology major writing her thesis

Hi everyone, I'm in the final year of my bachelor's degree. Due to reasons (COVID) I will be unable to conduct field research for my thesis, and have chosen to do some virtual ethnography to make up for it! My topic is the Straightedge movement, specifically its online presence and the significance of it to the "outside" (the real world). If you guys are willing, I would love to post some questions on this subreddit and create a space for debate and perhaps the disclosure of some personal experiences / opinions. These would later be used for my work, always anonymously (I have no reason to disclose the usernames of people I mention in my work, what is relevant is what is said in the discussion). Let me know, I would be immensely grateful!

Any books for a 16 year old looking to get into anthropology?

Hello! Title says it all really. My exams have been cancelled so I have a lot of time to do things I previously have been too busy to do. One of these is to properly begin wider reading around anthropology and the human sciences. I’m currently reading A Plague Of Caterpillars by Nigel Barley- the follow up book to The Innocent Anthropologist - and it’s bloody brilliant. Also reading Sophie’s World (but it’s an audiobook so doesn’t really count!).

Any interesting, easy-ish to read, not too pricey book recommendations would be absolutely fab. Any advice, warnings, encouragement also welcomed :) Thanks!

Cultural Anthropology student here looking to interview a modern Pagan for field research. Sorry if this is a weird place for me to look

Hello there! You don’t have to read this if you don’t want to, but for anyone interested enough, I’m a cultural anthropology student studying modern Pagans for field research, and since the local group that I’m primarily studying isn’t meeting due to COVID-19, I need to conduct a lot of my field research online. That said, I’m looking to interview a modern Pagan soon, and progressive online communities such as this one are places that I’m looking. We can conduct the interview through whatever medium you feel most comfortable with. Thank you.

Anthropology

Hey soooooooo Nextdoor is the coolest urban anthropology experiment ever. Has anyone got any demographic data on the platform? My guess is it's mostly white, middle to middle-upper class, 50yo+. And so the culture reflects that. I thought this was just where I live but then I found the various lols online about Nextdoor culture and began to wonder if it's a demographic thing, if it's that neighbors are just generally terrified of each other (RESEARCH QUESTION!!!), or what else could explain how hilariously depressing this stuff is. whatcha think?

The Anthropology of Deafness

I have started thinking about project proposals for grad studies and have become interested in the anthropology (and sociology) of deafness and would like recommendations of books and articles on this topic, if you know any good ones.

I live in a northern european country and took some classes in sign language in high school and became fascinated by how deaf people often see themselves as a cultural group and not necessarily as being disabled. I also find the debate on the Cochlear implant as a threat to deaf culture interesting.

I'd also appreciate any kind of advice or tips on this topic if you have any.

Thanks guys.

Should I get an anthropology degree?

Hi, I'm a 17yo guy from Portugal. I am going to graduate high school this year and I'm still not entirely sure what I want to do.

I know for a fact that I don't want to be working on an office for 40+ years until I can retire, so I'm not left with many options.

One thing that I absolutely would love to do is going to remote parts of Africa and Asia and talking to the local people, exploring nature, and studying the origins and evolution of our civilization.

With that being said, I'm not sure how easy it would be to find a job like that, if even possible. I also don't want to be a burden on my parents' back until my late 20's.

On the other hand I'm learning to play piano and I'll see if I learn to sing as well, so I have that going for me in case things don't work out well.

Considering all of this, do you, anthropologists, think that I should get a degree in this field? Or maybe archeology? Or should I do something else?

I’m a HS graduate and cultural anthropology/archaeology has always captured my interest. (I know it’s not Indiana Jones stuff, so don’t ask). I imagine anthropology as traveling around the world living among different cultures for long periods of time. Is there a way I can do this? Or is it just a fantasy?

Anthropology student here, looking for somebody working with psychedelics for spiritual use that would be interested in a phone interview

Hey everyone! I hope this kind of post is alright here.

I am currently doing my master's in cultural anthropology in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Right now I am doing a little bit of research on the spiritual use of psychedelic substances as part of an interview training. That means that I am trying to arrange a number of interviews with people connected to the topic.

Most of the time, I found people in town, or friends of friends for this, but now I am stuck as I am asked to interview someone professionally connected to my topic. I asked around in my local smart shop, and the guy was very friendly, but ultimately didn't have time to be my interviewee.

That is why I thought of asking on here whether anyone that is working as a shaman as their main or side job might be down for 20-30 minutes of online/phone interview at some point before Monday at noon (Dutch time)?

The interview would be unstructured, but simply concern your experience with your work, and perhaps additional personal

A friend and I are planning to study medical anthropology, but we want to read more "advanced" work first. Where should we start?

We both graduated from the same undergrad anthropology program a few years ago and recently reconnected online. Because we both plan to go to graduate school for medical anthropology at some point, we decided to start reading more literature that we didn't get much exposure to (or didn't get a chance to read in-depth due to the time-juggling demands of being in a college program).

We nonetheless come from somewhat different academic backgrounds in that he is far more versed in cultural studies, especially gender and film studies, while I probably read more literature on religion as a simple hobby than I did medical anthropology. (My favorite topics are the European witch hunts and their importance to modern witchcraft and pagan movements, the development of "the Western esoteric tradition," as well as dabbling in Judaism and antisemitism in general just because of my own background.) He wants to study HIV prevention and I want to study drug legalization activism.

In regards to how do people understand illness? What does it mean to be "sick"? How do people perceive something/a disease as infectious? How do people understand this in relation to modern/Western biomedical sciences? How is the biomedical science - with its jargon and explanation - experienced in daily lives? I remember getting treated by a practicioner who blends his alternative medicinal practice (I think it's related to reflexology) with technical biomedicine terms.

Feeling directionless (first-year PhD anthropology)

This is my first post on this sub, I am feeling desperate. I came here in the midst of filling in column after column on a spreadsheet trying to find funding, and that's where my crisis originates:

I am a first-year sociocultural anthropology student. I have a broad theoretical question/idea which leans philosophical (granted, it needs to be developed more--but I need a site first...). I have an area of the world where I would hope to do fieldwork based on time previously spent (solo) in this region and knowing I would feel safe (I am a woman hoping to work in sub-Saharan Africa). I should say these are two countries where I have traveled alone, rented a car, driven these countries alone and felt totally fine (and happy!) in these respective nations, etc. I have also spoken to a male anthropologist who did an amazing project in another part of the continent; I asked, "could a woman have done this same field work?" and he said (his opinion only, I know) absolutely not--rape is rampant.

Anyone bored in quarantine? I'm an anthropology student looking for an interviewee to talk about their spiritual use of psychedelics

Hey everyone,

I made similar posts a few days ago asking for somebody professionally involved with psychedelics for a mini research project I'm doing, and ended up having a super interesting talk with a practicing shaman (thanks again if you stumble upon this thread!!) :-)

In light of everyone being quarantined, I now also have trouble finding somebody to talk about their personal spiritual psych use (was going to meet someone in person, which we both agreed isn't the best idea now). So, I am now looking for someone that is actively involved in spiritual use of psychedelics on here. Basically, the longer you have been using psychs for spiritual reasons, and the greater the role they play in your spirituality, the better.

This interview might take a little longer, as it is modeled after the life story approach, but should not exceed 40 minutes. I would also need to audio record it, and send a transcription of that to my teacher. I would ask you a little bit about the role of reli

Conducting a study for a Linguistic Anthropology Course

Hi folks! I’m a college student (and a fellow Jew) conducting a study for an anthropology class. Specifically, it concerns multilingualism and globalization. I am looking in to Hebrew as a second language (especially when learned in the β€œHebrew School” setting) and feelings of connection/patriotism for (the state of) Israel (especially if you were not born there/did not spent your childhood there). If these criteria even kind of fit you, and you wouldn’t mind me asking you about 5 questions, comment here! I have also asked people at the Hillel chapter I attend but there just aren't many Jewish kids at my university.

Here are the questions:

  • Do you speak Hebrew? If so, how fluently do you speak it?
  • Did you attend Hebrew school?
  • Have you ever been to Israel?
  • How connected do you feel to Israel as a Jewish person?
  • Do you feel that a connection to Israel is fundamental to your identity as a Jewish person?
  • How has your experience with learning Hebrew as a second language impact

Person with very broad interests contemplating on what studies to choose next - thinking of anthropology. Advice appreciated!

Over the years I've thought of so many different things that I wanted to study. From law to engineering to history to chemistry to various humanities subjects. I've tried out some stuff, and I've managed to boil my choices down quite a bit. I finally started studying full-time at the beginning of last year and has since then focused on history and religious sciences. It's getting time for me to decide on a path and my initial plan for the autumn was to go into Information Systems and IT, but studying religion has really opened up my eyes for the humanities and liberal arts. For some reason though, I've never thought much about anthropology until recently (just came across some anthropology during my current course).

I would love to be able explore the human condition, what constitutes life and what drives us as people, how we connect with each other and our society. Am I right to assume that I'll be able to do that with anthropology? I'm sorry if I sound idealistic, I'm just typing ou

A little help with an Anthropology project

I'm currently taking an Anthropology class in university and our teacher asked us to choose a community of sorts for us to study. Something fairly simple, the basic idea is for us to understand and listen to other people and their experiences on something we don't understand that well. We were suppose to do this project talking with people face to face, but with all the Covid-19 situation he told us to find something online so I thought of this game. I would like to ask if any of you could share some experiences you had in EVE that make you come back. What makes you enjoy this game, what do you do when you play, what do you sort of expect if that makes any sense. From any branch or role you do. It can be something really simple or complex go as far has you want, if you feel more comfortable you can send me a PM. Anything is welcome really.

Hi everyone! I graduated with a bachelor's degree in economics, but i'm interested in changing paths and pursuing a career in neuroscience research. I don't have prior coursework in the sciences and I was wondering if it is possible to earn a master's degree in a slightly more related discipline, such as biological anthropology, and eventually be admitted into a PhD program. Could anyone shed some light on this transition? Would it make more sense to take time off from school and take science courses at a local university? Thank you!

Applied Anthropology vs Anthropology Masters program? Would love your advice!

Hi everyone!

I currently work as a UX designer in the tech industry. In the last few years, I've absolutely fallen in love with research and took a cultural anthropology class at my local community college. With the strong encouragement of my professor, I've been looking into Masters and PhD programs for applied anthropology.

I'm thinking that going to school will help me land jobs at think tanks, public institutions (UN, World Bank etc), or private companies that'll enable me to do some rad-ass research on globalization, national identities/cultures, international relations, or conduct some economic ethnography. Even cooler-- I'd be able to act on those findings to design a solution/response. As a designer, I can't let go of the part of me that wants to create.

Since I come from a private sector background, I'm in the process of making sense of academia. I had a couple of questions for anyone out there who might be able to help me understand the industry.

Food anthropology; anyone have any recommendations?

I've become increasingly interested in the anthropologic aspect of food, especially from a race and class perspective. I've only ever seen essays about this here and there, but have never found a body of work about it. Has anyone come up on that?

Hi fellow woomies and veemos,

As the title says, I have gotten Splatoon and its culture approved for my antropology project. As such, I have to interview certain players/members of the community on their behaviors and beliefs while playing the game. All answers/replies will be completely anonymous and the only data I will be using is your gender/age. Please DM me if interested.

Which would be a better foundation to become an art historian: Anthropology or History?

Hello, everyone! I apologize in advance if this is not the sub for this kind of post, but I really need some help and was hoping some of you might be able to assist me.

TL;DR:

When a major in Art History is not an option, which major would be a better foundation to become an art historian: Anthropology or History?

Context:

I’m a third-year Astrophysics major, and over the course of a little more than a year and through various experiences since having started college, I have come to realize that the career I actually and really want to pursue is Art History. However, there are many factors I think I must take into account before making any decisions or taking any action.

Firstly, I do not want to drop out of Astrophysics and change my major, mainly because I don’t like the idea of having wasted 2+ years of my life. It is for this reason that I am considering getting a double degree (i.e. completing my current studies while majoring in an art-related field). Sad

Opinions on ontological anthropology ? Does it actually make any sense ? How ? Do its advocates truly embrace it ? Is that an approach only of scholars or have (at least some) indigenous peoples agreed with it ?

Which argues that we need to embrace the idea of the pluriverse i.e the idea that there is not one single nature/world and different understandings/perceptions of it, but many worlds/realities (ontologies) that are constantly coming into being and that « nature » is a social construct.

I want to do an anthropology presentation on incels, any things you would personally like to see tackled?

I have anthropology this semester in university and most of our grade comes from a presentation, the teacher has given us the theme of β€œsocial movements” to tackle, most of my classmates seem to be trying to do research in β€œpositive” movements so I thought why not tackle something I consider negative (and hopefully all of them do too), what main topics would you guys find most interesting to tackle? I already have most of the history and beliefs part written down, but there are so many other topics i could put emphasis on.

Ngl it will be quite funny to explain what a Chad or a Stacy is in an auditorium.

Any advice for a college senior majoring in Anthropology with only a vague idea of what career they want?

Only reason I'm majoring in Anthropology is because it has the most lenient graduation requirements at my university, and doesn't have any difficult math/statistic prerequisites like the computer science or data science majors.

I hate math. Never really clicked with me. Always struggled with the concepts and stuff. Same thing with any of the hard sciences, really. Not my thing.

I'm okay at writing essays and stuff, though, so I've done well in all these Anthropology courses. 18 credits left to graduate. 3.8 GPA.

I tried to learn coding on my own a couple times, but got bored and gave up both times. But maybe I should try again?

All I know about my ideal "career" is that it would be a cushy office gig where I can sit on my ass all day like the lazy bastard I am. What sort of work would I be doing? Doesn't matter, as long as the work environment isn't too hectic and the people I work with are tolerable.

Right now I work as a stocker in a grocery store. Easy, but boring, an

How do I demonstrate to colleges my interests in Anthropology/Public Health?

Hey there, I'm a junior in high school and I've been wondering how I can demonstrate an interest in anthropology/public health when I apply to college. I've always had interests in helping people and how societies can work towards better health, but I've done nothing in my high school career that shows that.

Also, is it true that applying to certain colleges with an anthropology/public health interest would give me a better chance rather than more competitive fields, like STEM?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
