Joan C. Ludeke, Ph.d., F.S.A.A.
Anthropology is continually expanding its parameter. As a consequence, the twenty-first century will see the sub- discipline of applied anthropology coming to the fore as more and more anthropologists contribute their expertise to problem-solving in the non-academic world. An example of this burgeoning approach to doing anthropology is the work of one anthropologist, over a two year period of time, for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, as an expert witness in a lawsuit brought by a women who charged she was terminated from her job because of her religion.
