About Ask An Anthropologist

Who should use Ask An Anthropologist?

Anyone is welcome to use Ask An Anthropologist. Keep in mind that it is intended primarily to serve grades preK-12, and to be available as a resource for teachers and parents. We also find that life-long learners enjoy many of the content areas on our website and encourage anyone interested in the study of humans to make use of its content. As always, ASU faculty and staff will be accessible through email to their students.

What Ask An Anthropologist does not do

Ask An Anthropologist is not intended to answer questions for post-secondary students (college and university level students). However, teachers are highly encouraged to use the site, whether they are involved in preK-12 classes or not, and to send us their feedback.
