Making Strangers at Home: Anthropologists Studying Higher Education
Shumar, Wesley
Journal of Higher Education, v75 n1 p23 Jan-Feb 2004
This article seeks to isolate one major strand of work in American cultural anthropology together with its implications for the study of higher education. While the number of anthropologists who do research on higher education is fairly small, the importance of the field's theoretical and methodological contributions is significant. This article begins with one set of important theoretical and methodological considerations in anthropology. It then discusses some of the ways cultural anthropology makes contributions to the study of higher education.
