ANTHROPOLOGY IS ABOUT:
Understanding how we produce goods and power, make kinship and gender, decide what is right and wrong, build and destroy environments -- all in such a variety of ways;
Studying language and other forms of communication, such as new media, technology, and the arts;
Through archaeological excavations, examining big picture changes in society, culture, and biology over time -- from the deep human past to the fraught realities of lives unfolding today;
- Investigating the evolution of human and non-human primates through study of adaptation, genetics, behavior, and ecology -- confronting the contours and limits of human uniqueness.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the Department of Anthropology needs your support.
