Ellen Pierce Exploration of Human Diversity Topics January 19, 2012 In the readings, the topic of sociology is brought up. How does anthropology  differ from sociology? To what degree does the rapport of the anthropologist in the area he is studying  affect the results of his research.  Because a large deal of information gathered is directly from the people, how  exact is anthropology? What is the point of all of this research? How does it affect us as a society? Not all studies are conducted on foreign peoples, as was proven by the study of  prostitutes in NYC and Atlanta. What decides which groups are good to study and which are not.  Many of the researchers are referred to as whitey, or some sort of indication of  their race. What is the importance of race in these studies, as well as in all human  interactions?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
