After class on Tuesday 16th of February, I asked Professor Comitas to help me clarify the history and overview of the field of Anthropology. I’m becoming more interested in the idea of learning Ethnographic methodology but am not clear on how this work fits into the history. After the first couple of classes I pursued an interest in M.G. Smith and read the first third of The Study of Social Structure, but this only served to make me more curious about how others see Smith.
I was hoping for a reading suggestion or recommendation of sorts but instead was asked to take a seat while he gave me an answer.
