Discovering the bow of a ship underneath the World Trade Center, helping corporations understand how people's identities show up in technology – or a think tank looking at social relationships in the workplace, working with gangs in East LA, a death investigator helping police solve crimes – it seems anthropology is everywhere these days. And that’s no coincidence because anthropologists ARE everywhere these days, studying the biological, cultural, linguistic, and archaeological aspects of what it means to be human.

The American Anthropological Association has created a video series to showcase who we are, what we do, and how we add value to society. Join us as we explore the Captivating and Curious Careers of Anthropology. Use one of the 3 to 4-minute videos in the series as a starting point for a lesson. 

The Society for Visual Anthropology (SVA) is a section of the American Anthropological Association that promotes the study of visual representation and media.
