How Is Globalization Transforming Culture? - Define globalization and describe three key interrelated effects it has  on local cultures, identifying concrete examples that illustrate each of the  three effects. What is unique about ethnographic fieldwork, and why do anthropologists conduct this  kind of research? - Explain the ethnographic perspectives that make ethnography a  unique discipline that is both a social science and an art. How did the idea of fieldwork develop? - Discuss the origins of contemporary cultural anthropology. Define  19th-century “armchair anthropology” and how this methodology is related to  the unilineal evolutionary perspective. - Summarize the research of mid-20th century anthropologists and the  study of a wider range of research populations and topics. - Define qualitative and quantitative data, and distinguish the methods  used to collect each type of information.  How do anthropologists get started conducting fieldwork?

- Explain how anthropologists prepare for fieldwork, including  conducting literature reviews, obtaining clearance to conduct research on  human subjects, and the items they pack in their toolkit. How are fieldwork strategies changing in response to globalization? - Discuss how intensifying globalization has changed the way  fieldwork is conducted, including ways that technology can allow contact to  continue after the ethnographer has left the field.
