This is a listing of common traits among cultures, what Murdock called “cultural universals,” which could be used to determine what is common or variable among cultures in a holocultural study.

It emphasizes the power of comparison to illuminate the key dynamics behind critical social concerns. Cultural anthropologists could use the field’s tools to effectively address important social issues. But as noted, anthropology is embedded in social contexts that do not encourage such efforts. Rather than becoming recognized public figures concerned with addressing important problems—as Paul Farmer has— most cultural anthropologists are inclined to turn inward, publishing their analyses in partially intelligible prose in anthropology journals with modest readerships The Jews in America.

One of the movements that has gained tremendous impetus in the humanities and social sciences is the rediscovery of the role of women in history and their contributions to human culture. Many female researchers find that this approach to cultural anthropology corresponds well with their own research interests. It is also a field that many male students will find interesting. Possible topics within this broader category include the contributions of specific women throughout history New Reflections on Primo Levi: Before and after Auschwitz (Italian and Italian American Studies).

Anthropological studies of “primitive” religious systems are now numerous, and analyses of such actions as sacrifice and of such concepts as god and spirit have contributed much to our understanding of their complexity and sophistication (for example, Evans-Pritchard 1956). The study of religious systems has revealed more clearly than in most other fields the differences of basic philosophical assumptions in the work of social anthropologists Contact Zone Identities in the Poetry of Jerzy Harasymowicz: A Postcolonial Analysis. Globalization does not spread evenly, and its interactions with and effects on local cultures vary substantially, from positive change for all groups involved to cultural destruction and extinction for those whose land, livelihood and culture are lost Institutions and Social Order. While Scott Atran has pointed out that anthropologists who assert that due to the radical incommensurability of “ways of knowing” one may not be able to make general assertions of cross cultural nature, nevertheless seem to make an exception for their own situations, which often involves outsider scholars embedding themselves in other societies, and writing and thinking about the patterns they see The Dialectics of Shopping (Lewis Henry Morgan Lecture Series).
