Subject outline

In this subject we examine the ways in which anthropology is used in a number of practical contexts outside of universities. Students will be provided with an overview of the relevance and application of anthropological research to particular arenas, such as cultural heritage management, community development, the environment, social impact assessment, education, health, land rights, migration, Indigenous affairs and the performance of expert witness duties in courts or tribunals. These matters will be illustrated by examples of applied anthropological research methodology in various countries, with particular emphasis on Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
