The American Anthropological Association (AAA) designates the 3rd Thursday of February as Anthropology Day, a day to “celebrate what Anthropology is and what it can achieve” while “sharing it with the world around us.”  Emory Anthropology students stopped by today to share what they love about Anthropology, which included things like:

“It focuses on concepts I have always thought about but have never been able to articulate.  Anthro promotes understanding and acceptance for/of differences!”

“It allows me to apply cultural competence to the social justice issues that I am passionate about.”

“I love anthro because it opens my mind into thinking in new ways and broadens my world view!”

“It connects us to our ROOTS!”

“Because it’s teaching me how to be a more empathetic doctor and human.”

“It provides multi-dimensional perspectives that apply to many disciplines.”

“Anthropology has taught be how to be in the world in a meaningful way.”

We love to see how studying anthropology allows our students to feel more connected to each other and the world, while focusing on a broad range of interests and applications.  Whatever our specific goals and inspirations, we all believe in the power of anthropology to help make the world a better place!  #AnthroDay
