The Cultural Anthropology program focuses on issues such as gender and sexuality, class, religion, politics, and migration as shaped by history as well as the mobility of people and ideas. Faculty area specialties include North America, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa but the program is particularly interested in the transnational histories and global forces that connect and divide these regions. Training is offered in popular memory, material culture, religion, performance studies, medical anthropology, and political anthropology. The department provides students with excellent training in theory and methods to enable them to pursue research and teaching careers within and beyond the academy.
