BackgroundAnthropological concepts can be used to analyze a wide range of contemporary issues. Drawing on this disciplinary perspective and their own research findings, some anthropologists actively engage in public debates. For example, they may write editorial pieces in newspapers or appear on television programs. This kind of engaged work is called public anthropology. At the end of 2015, the anthropologist Angelique Haugerud, an Anthropologist at Rutgers University, published an article about the various ways that other anthropologists spoke out about pressing public issues over the course of that year.
