Anthropology in the World News

Contemporary anthropological research is consistently producing new information that contributes to the ways that people in society structure reality and assign meanings. Locate a news article that reports anthropological findings from any of the four fields of anthropology. Provide a brief overview of the findings presented in the article. What is the broader significance of those findings in shaping or reshaping the reader’s worldview? Are there any social, economic, or political implications associated with those findings? Does the research provide closure or open up an entirely new set of questions that demand more research? What is ┬áthe overall contribution of those findings to the general public?

Be sure to include a link to the article in your post.
