Anthropology may be generally defined as the study of human cultural and biological diversity over time and space. Its relationship to other disciplines has been different in different national contexts, however, as have its departmental structures. Given time constraints, a course in the history of anthropology must be selective. We will emphasize the history of Anglophone sociocultural anthropology, but will also attend to anthropology in Francophone and German-speaking countries, to various sub-specialties (including biological anthropology, archaeology, and folklore), and to the discipline's ties to other areas of esoteric expertise (especially medicine and other types of field science).
