About the Department
The Department of Anthropology is committed to a multidimensional inquiry into what it is to be human—past and present, nearby and distant. We term this “integrative anthropology” and this ethos permeates our research, faculty interactions, graduate education, and undergraduate curriculum.
We emphasize a seamless scholarly community that stretches from the most celebrated senior faculty to the youngest undergraduates. Every member of this community can contribute to the growth of knowledge and understanding.
Our pursuit of understanding takes an almost limitless number of forms.
