IB Social & Cultural Anthropology (2015)

Hello parents and incoming students, if you would like to know more about me and my role here at TGS watch: Meet Martino 2014 Vlog 

Social/cultural anthropology is the comparative study of culture and human societies. It explores both the general principles of social and cultural life and operates within the global and local. It is concerned with urban as well as rural society, regional inequalities, as well as all aspects of modern nation states. Anthropology contributes to an understanding of such contemporary issues as war and conflict, the environment, poverty, problems of injustice, inequality and human rights. The subject has changed in many ways but retains its focus on ordinary people and seeks to develop an understanding of humankind and value its diversity.
