Home » Disciplines & Subdisciplines » Subdisciplines


In this section we explore some of the conventional sub-disciplines within North American, and to some extent British anthropology. We also explore the way anthropology, as a discipline has interacted (or not) with other social science disciplines within the US academic tradition, leading to various hybrids and new mixtures–sometimes called interdisciplinarity.
