The AnthropologistThe Anthropologist considers the fate of the planet from the perspective of Katie, an American teenager. Over five years, she travels alongside her mother Susie Crate, an anthropologist studying the impact of climate change on indigenous communities.

At the core of The Anthropologist are the parallel stories of two women: Margaret Mead, who popularized cultural anthropology in America; and Susie Crate, an environmental anthropologist currently studying the impact of climate change. Uniquely revealed from their daughters’ perspectives, Mead and Crate demonstrate a fascination with how societies are forced to negotiate the disruption of their traditional ways of life, whether through encounters with the outside world or the unprecedented change wrought by melting permafrost, receding glaciers and rising tides.
