What is Social Anthropology?
Sociocultural anthropology (also called social anthropology or cultural anthropology) is the study of contemporary human cultures. It includes the general themes ofáculture and economy, politics, ethnohistory, religion, oral traditions, art, and linguistics. Sociocultural anthropology also explores the role of meanings, ambiguities and contradictions of social life, patterns of sociality, violence and conflict, and the underlying logics of social behavior.
Sociocultural anthropologists spend time in the field studying the social organization of specific groups or people. They use ethnography to gather empirical data through participant observation, interviews, and questionnaires.
