At HRAF, we love getting the chance to use the ethnographic archives to answer our own cross-cultural questions! (And hopefully inspire you on the ways you can use them too.) Often, we see something on the news or a blog and we think: how have people from other cultures approached that topic? This month, our ponderings are about perceptions of crow intelligence and beauty norms.
Also read about researcher Emily Pitek, who is collaborating with the Database of Religious History to incorporate ethnographic information from eHRAF. And finally, don't forget to check out our open-access resources!
