If you are new to the field of anthropology, creating an anthropological research question may be daunting if you have never taken a class on this subject before.
The purpose of this guide is to help you:
- Find background information on broad topics in anthropology
- Develop an anthropological research topic (and if possible related to your major)
- Teach you strategies to develop keywords to find articles on your chosen topic in anthropological journals.
If you have questions, feel free to contact me for help!
