Anthropological research is engaged with local communities. It is committed to empirical observation. And it is shaped by advanced theoretical understandings of practice and process, tradition and transformation. These are a few highlights of our current work:
Student Research Opportunities
The Department of Anthropology has many partners on campus and around the world that enable our students and faculty members to explore collaborative research opportunities. Students can work with faculty but are also encouraged to develop their own skills at imagining, designing and executing individual research projects.
Thanks to the Freedman Awards for Undergraduate Research, the department can provide some financial support to help students gain training at field schools, conduct original research and gather data in support of an honors thesis. Anthropological research experience is an unparalleled way to gain experience working independently in the global community.
