Her recent work in the field of graphic medicine combines anthropology with memoir and visual art. Ethnographic information can take many different forms.

    During the s and s, there was an epistemological shift away from the positivist traditions that had largely informed the discipline. These people may find it unnecessary to find that people in other societies, such as the American society, eat using forks, spoons, knives, etc. However, the subfields also have a number of similarities. For linguistic anthropologists, language and communication are keys to how we make society and culture.

    Cultural Anthropology: The study of contemporary human cultures and how these cultures are formed and shape the world around them. Colonialism refers to the social system in which the political conquests by one society of another leads to "cultural domination with enforced social change". It caused the big toe to be closer to the heel causing the foot to bow. Humans, in turn, use culture to adapt and transform the world they live in. Anthropology and many other current fields are the intellectual results of the comparative methods developed in the earlier 19th century. Ethnography is often referred to as "culture writing," and is a type of documentation often employed by Anthropologists in their field work.
