Meet Our Faculty
Learn more about our faculty's innovative and transformative research on the human experience and the research themes that cross-cut our program. Much of their research is supported with a wide variety of external grants and fellowships.

Anthropology faculty, staff, and students draw on a comparative framework as we seek to understand human diversity, distinctiveness, and universality through time and across the world. Anthropology spans the humanities, the social sciences, and the biological, cognitive, and evolutionary sciences, bringing an interdisciplinary vitality to research and teaching on some of the most important issues facing humanity today: conflict and violence, human rights, power struggles, migration, environmental change, cultural identity, political and economic life, food, and understanding the ways that cultural meaning, history, and power have shaped the human experience.
