Q is for … Questions?

Did you know that anthropology is an academic field? And that, as an academic field, it really relies on asking questions?

Have you ever written a research paper? What did you use for a topic? Did you ever have the opportunity to learn about a foreign culture or land? Could these be questions to larger projects or a bigger picture?

So, what are questions really for? Do they help us find answers or new questions? Or both? Are they, perhaps, better if they do both? What about when you never find the answer?

In writing, can we use questions to help further story development? How about questions like “What if?” or “Why?” How often do you come up with a new story idea because of a question?

  1. Questions are important, I agree. I believe asking the right questions can do both. As people, we need to be asking questions all the time. Not just when it comes to stories, but throughout our livelihood. There’s always something we don’t know about how the world works. Asking questions allow us to be creative, to think outside the box. There’s no telling the possibilities that can come about from asking questions, even if they are rudimentary.
