Question:

How has Anthropology changed from the beginning of its' creation in 18th century Europe to modern day practice?

Eliana G.
Answer:

Anthropology, when first created, was different than it is now because "armchair anthropologists" would study other cultures by reading books and other research written by others on specific peoples. Most often, these writings were racist, ethnocentric, and were not always accurate. Today, there are ethical practices, and changed worldview that allows Anthropologists a year or more to actually be in the field and live among the people they are studying. They also need to be aware of their bias and perspectives which may shape the way they think about what they are perceiving from a more critical lens. Also, Anthropology does not need to only study foreign cultures abroad, it can include any type of community at home too. There are also 4 sub-groups within Anthropology, and that is cultural, physical, linguistics, and archaeology.
