Biological Anthropology and the Public: Natalia Reagan

Lights, Camera, Anthropology!

We are truly living in interesting times. From evolution and climate change deniers, to the rise of racial essentialist thinking, to threats of mass extinction, it is clear that the field of anthropology is of critical importance, including biological anthropology. BOAS Network is a non-profit website that brings anthropology to the mainstream through videos, many of which use comedy as an effective tool to reach the mainstream. Our goal is to teach the masses about the exciting field of anthropology which will hopefully inspire future anthropologists to join our field, lead to greater science literacy, and promote a more tolerant and informed public.
