Associate Professor and Chair of Anthropology

The field of anthropology promotes a holistic understanding of social life by offering complex accounts of human histories, societies, and cultures. Anthropologists do ethnographic, archival, biological, and archaeological research on various aspects of individual and collective experience in all time periods and parts of the world. Because field experience is essential to the discipline, the department sponsors multiple opportunities for students to carry out anthropological field work under professional conditions. Options include the Anthropology major, the Geography-Anthropology major, an Anthropology correlate and a Biology-Anthropology correlate.
