while this is certainly not the study of history, the study of social anthropology is closely linked to historical inquiry. it looks at how cultures and societies function in addition to how they functioned in the past. using somewhat different methods (ethnography is the one that will be focused on here) gives the study of societal and cultural groups a unique perspective that provides an excellent counterpoint to the traditional timeline and era approach to history.
this will be a mixture of the outside-in approach, exploring how cultures function from a practical perspective, and the inside-in approach, looking at how societies see themselves from within in the contemporary age.
