Sociocultural Anthropology








Cross-cultural curiosity and interpretation clearly predate the institutionalization of academic anthropology. As a form of qualitative and empirical data-gathering and analysis, conventional ethnography aspired to holistic and detailed representations of cultural difference. Early ethnographies provided guidelines for approaching anthropological field research and helped to construct early theoretical and conceptual categories within the field, including foundational distinctions between emic and etic ways of understanding cultural worlds.
