Welcome to This is Anthropology. On this website, you can learn more about the discipline of anthropology, use our interactive map to learn about anthropology projects in different parts of the world, explore the skills and careers anthropologists have, and find out how you can become an anthropologist.
Anthropology is not for everyone, but those who engage in it tend to do so with a passion. This is a field that urges us to piece together what it means to be human from our evolution, archaeological study of the past, ethnographic study of people today and probing the semantics of languages.
I am an environmental anthropologist interested in the way we manage nature in today's growing urban society. I think this research is extremely important as it offers insight into some of the ways in which we create both our present as well as our future.
I am a graduate student and teaching assistant at Georgia State University. My research focuses on examining how environmental changes affected ancient Maya ritual through the analysis of archaeological plant remains recovered from caves in the periphery of the site of Pacbitun, located in Belize.

I am a doctoral student at the University of Binghamton. Prior to this I worked as an applied anthropologist making websites. I use my anthropological knowledge to create designs and branding that resonate with their target populations.
