1. The website for the American Anthropological Association can be found at http://www.americananthro.org/. Log on to the website and look at “Sections," which can be accessed by clicking on "Participate & Advocate." What does this suggest to you about the scope of contemporary anthropology? Which of these groups do you think you would want to join, and why?
2. AnthroSource also allows you to search for any author, topic, or cultural group written about in journals published by the American Anthropological Association. Log onto its site, http://anthrosource.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/, and using the journals search box at the top of the page, search articles about one culture group that interests you, for example, the Maya or Hopi. Some things you might want to note in the resulting list:
· What issues were prominent in the late nineteenth century?
· Early twentieth century?
· Early twenty-first century?
· What might account for some of the changes you see in the discussion of a particular culture group over the two centuries of publication of this journal?
