Anthropology Anthropology is the systematic study of the similarities and differences among peoples throughout the world at all times. It includes both cross-cultural and evolutionary approaches to understanding the causes of human biological and cultural variation. Anthropological research typically involves fieldwork: living with and studying people in a region or community, investigating archaeological sites for the record of past cultures and societies; exploring fossil remains, primate behavior and human biological variability; describing and ***yzing human linguistic variation. admissions.udel.edu Filmed and edited by Avi Amon '08 www.udel.edu
Anthropology and Society During the mid-twentieth century, two anthropologists made landmark contributions to their field. Julian H. Steward developed cultural ecology, a method for studying cultural change by ***yzing the interaction of social life, environment, and technology. Oscar Lewis created innovative methods for community and family studies and published influential oral histories of the poor to document the human costs of poverty worldwide.

Culture of Wall Street University of Minnesota professor Karen Ho talks about how Wall Street is a culture full of prep school cronies that are so focused on profits and bonuses, that they have no long term economic vision. Ho is the author of the upcoming book, Liquidated: An Ethnography of Wall Street. Based on three years of research immersed in Wall Street fieldwork, including working for a bank, she reveals the dominance of financial culture and how it has spread across America and set the stage for financial crises.

Street-based Prostitution, An Anthropological Perspective This video presents few anthropological ideas that can contribute to the current debate on safety of prostitutes and to the creation of better services and laws to support them in their work. It focuses mainly on Canada, but its relevance goes well beyond our country. Context: On September 28th 2010, Justice Susan Himel, from the Ontario Superior Court, declared unconstitutional three of the Canada's prostitution laws. In her decision, she ruled that these sections of the country's criminal code violate the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Considering the security and constitutional rights of ***-trade workers, Judge Himel concluded that the prohibition of operating a common bawdy house, living off the avails of prostitution and communicating for the purposes of prostitution was contributing to the danger faced by prostitutes. The 131-page court ruling, initiated in 2009 by three women generated numerous different reactions from the public. Justice Himel's decision rekindled a public debate that seemed previously amorphous and renewed public interest on *** work industry. Both federal and provincial government quickly appealed the case. ----- Our apologies for the poor quality of the soundtrack.

History of the American Anthropological Associations Annual Meetings Presentation at the 2010 American Anthropological Associations Annual Meetings in New Orleans.
