Anthropology: Cultural and Linguistic Anthropology

Cultural anthropology, which is also known as social anthropology or ethnology, studies cultural processes and often relies on qualitative ethnographic field research. At Penn, the teaching of cultural anthropology is joined with linguistic anthropology, whose focus is language, sign systems, and discourse as part of culture.
