College of Arts & Sciences
Department of Anthropology


Faculty and Graduate Students.

Our faculty have geographical specialization in Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, North America, Asia and Europe. In addition to a broad focus on comparative diasporic studies and social justice, their topical interests include historical archaeology, medical anthropology, transcultural identities and processes, political economic anthropology, anthropology of place, visual anthropology, ethnobotany, gender, migration studies, and human/environment interactions. Every faculty member in the Department of Anthropology also participates in at least one interdisciplinary program. There are vibrant interdisciplinary conversations on this campus, and these provide many excellent opportunities for student participation.

Crosscutting topical and regional faculty interests are shared theoretical interests in inequality, globalization, gender, ethnicity, race/racialization, and class. The Department of Anthropology offers programs of study leading to baccalaureate, masters of arts, and doctoral degrees. Currently we have approximately 100 undergraduate majors and our masters and doctoral programs have more than 30 students enrolled.
