    Hi guys! My name is Marie, I'm 20 and will be studying Anthropology at Sussex. Is any one else doing anthropology?
    I am a Londoner, hate to say it but I really do enjoy eating meat, like to paint and dance samba.
    Going to to Sussex as I need to escape London's pollution.
    Wahey!.. a samba dancer! I play samba percussion, mainly caxia/rep!.. we should definitely start up a society!

    You certainly have

    I've been here about three months...im living just off Lewes road and working about 30 seconds walk from Audio...so pretty close to your flat:p:

    I wouldn't have any worries about living off campus...it's great in Brighton. After a couple of months you'll be very glad you chose it!

    I reckon all it means is that we'll have to work a bit harder in Fresher's week....not too big a price to pay

    I'm going to study Music informatics - a cross between Music and Computer Science

    I'm getting really excited about it now - and also a bit nervous, especially as i'm quite 'mature' at age 26!!

    The night life is unique in Brighton. What are you into - and where are you from? I moved here from up north and the pubs have much more atmosphere and character down here - although the beer is poor and expensive!!

    There are loads of clubs but if you tell me what you're into i'll impart my (fairly limited) knowledge

    Well im not that way inclined but Kemptown seems to be the place to be for any LBGT happenings. I went to Pride festival last weekend (did you go?) in Preston Park....it was fatter than I possibly thought it could be...tens of thousands of ppl and a true mini festival minutes from the centre of Brighton great laugh whether you're straight gay bi whatever.

    There's loads of club nights...and free parties...especially on the beach and around devil's dyke. They're fun whatever you're into.

    I am into my real ale...call me an old giffer if you like...and I would particularly recommend the Evening Star which is just a minute's walk from the mainline station. Amazing beer and one of the cheapest pints in B'ton too

    If I was to pick a negative...I love my techno and electro.....I have to go to London for that really

    what IS anthropology? I've heard people mentioning it and I've still got no clue what it actually is
    If Psychology is the study of the human mind and behaviour, and Sociology is the study of society, then Anthropology is the study of humanity in general. It tends to focus on the "unwritten rules of society", participant-observation (with the anthropologists joining in with the people they are studying), and ethnography (the act of 'writing up' ones findings, and working out what is and what isn't important).

    Sussex offers Cultural / Social Anthropology, which focuses on culture. In the first year, I looked at areas such as:
    - the social role of Hindu temple festivals in Indian villages
    - the relationship between politics and ideas of witchcraft in West Africa
    - group identity amongst street performers and buskers in Brighton
    - race, poverty and fortified housing in LA and Sao Paulo

    In the coming year, we look at things like
    - grassroots political movements
    - social exchange (the rules of gift-giving, trade, etc.)
    - different family structures in various societies

    from your description it seem as though it's very close to cultural studies...
