Culture and Belonging: Become Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

For our third episode of Culture and Belonging, we asked Dr. Stephen Carmody, an associate professor of anthropology, to talk to us about how he defines culture and belonging. Anthropology is the study of the origin and development of human societies and cultures, and our conversation delves into the concept of becoming comfortable with being uncomfortable and focuses on how anthropologists seek commonalities and shared humanity within diversity. When we see things in another culture that we don’t understand, it can be helpful to remember that those differences are likely representative of things we actually do know.
