I am an undergraduate student of anthropology and I am taking an
independent study course on research design. I am about to write a grant
proposal to do a study on low self-esteem in adolescent girls. In my
literature review, I have found only psychology and sociology sources.
Does anyone out there know if there have been anthropological research
done on this topic? Also, I am planning to get my PhD in a few years and
I am trying to find a good school to go to--specifically in applied anthro
relating to children and/or maternal welfare--anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.
