Cultural Anthropology

Cultural anthropology is the study of the differences of living society. Cultural anthropology is traditionally based on the work of an ethnographer who lives among members of another culture. An ethnography is the description and analysis of time spent within a group or culture. Conducting fieldwork is characteristic of the ethnographic process.
