Anthropology is the study of humans.
Anthropology, like its object of study, is complicated and fascinating.
Anthropologists want to know everything about our species, from its earliest origins to its complex present, and use every tool and question we can think of to understand our embodied, social nature.
As a medical anthropologist, Notre Dame associate professor Vania Smith-Oka is interested in how larger institutions shape the lives of the people who interact within them. In her current research, she wants to know how some medical professionals, tasked with caring for patients, create a system that abuses some of their most vulnerable patients. She and graduate students are spending time in hospitals and doctor’s offices in Mexico to understand how such a culture evolves.
