    In order to keep anthropology 21st century relevant, I believe that we need to be using a combination of objectivity and subjectivity. Don’t get me wrong, I am fully aware of the importance of remaining objective, and I believe it teaches people valuable skills. However, I think people should be using their objective research to help influence and change the world for the better. In 2016, one of the most important things we need are activists, fighters for change. You can’t advocate for change whilst remaining objective. I don’t know whether I’ve really made much sense here, but I wrote a blog post about activism in academia just the other day (from a vegan, anthropology student’s perspective). You’re welcome to check it out 🙂 thanks!
