Ask critical questions about contemporary, past and future social life. You will develop analytical skills required to understand the four major themes of the program including gender, health and the body; nature, science and religion; culture and performance; and power, politics, and development.
The Anthropology program concentrates on how class, race, gender, health and ethnic identity are linked to challenges and change in the contemporary world. As anthropologists, we are interested in exploring how people are subjected to, participate in and contest the processes of living in a world that is now interconnected by new and powerful economic, cultural and technological forces. These themes are explored in a wide variety of courses that engage such topics as: development and the environment; media and popular culture; health, illness and disability; gender and sexualities; tourism, religion and science; diasporic communities and displaced peoples; violence and conflict; and the colonial process. Other courses focus on processes of change in the prehistoric and historic past.
