My Journal on Anthropology, and Ethnomusicology
Anthropology can be very complex and almost anything is part of anthropology in
society, anything from music to sports, food, or just evolution of human traits and characteristics.
I chose the image above from Creative Commons as an example of the embodiment of
anthropology. You can see in the photo, technology we have invented such as a microphone or
electric guitar, we see the clothing style that is worn in western cultures, that have been created
by manufacturers, and may be imported from China. We also see the buildings in the background
that have been built. But, we see that we have evolved something such as music as a society to
connect with each other, and as a personal therapy. I do see myself using subfields of
anthropology in the future such as music, or fitness because I have an interest in these fields and
also the evolution of music is very interesting and can also help me to learn more in my career. I
found it interesting that some peopular songs we know, like ''Silent Night'' was written in 1818, so
it has been around for a long time.
I noticed that in the first discussion I chose, Ethnomusicology the anthropology of music,
and in this journal I have chosen the image of a guitar player. This is because I find music
interesting, I am knowledgable about it and I find it easy to talk about. I'm not surprised with my
choices, as I often try to choose things I know about and am interested in.
I look at the world differently in terms of seeing how it changes and evolves, and that
different societies have different cultures but also there are universal similarities, such as music
or seeing ghosts and religion. I find this interesting in my personal research or in conversations
with people, because now you know that some things are unexplained and perhaps there's
evidence of the paranormal.
