Theory in Anthropology

Sociocultural Anthropology has been through dramatic changes in the last 30 years. As part of their work in the Indiana University Anthropology Department's "Proseminar in Sociocultural Anthropology" students have compiled webpages covering subdisciplines within the field, important organizations and associations, changes in anthropological perspectives over time, and prominent theorists. All are valuable resources for beginning and advanced students in sociocultural anthropology.
