Choose a Topic in Anthropology

You can start by choosing a location or topic and look into its anthropological and cultural significance as well as current events or social issues occurring in the locale. The topic can involve art, history, travel, architecture, or even current events. Make sure not to add duplicate information by searching your topic in the blog search. It’s ok if your topic is similar to an existing blog as long as it expands upon the information already present.
