Field of Study: Anthropology
Description: What is anthropology? Derived from the Greek anthropos (human) and logia (study), anthropology is the study of humankind from its beginnings to the present day. Nothing human is alien to anthropology. Indeed, of the many disciplines that concern themselves with the human, only anthropology seeks to understand the whole panorama of human existence — in geographic space and evolutionary time — through comparative and holistic study.

Our programs focus on the four traditional subfields of anthropology: biological, archaeological, socio-cultural, and linguistic. We also have strengths in forensic anthropology (which includes human biology, archaeology, and ethnohistory). Our faculty studies a broad array of topics that range from the exploration of ancient pyrotechnologies in South Asia to the study of rainmaking, gender and ritual in Tanzania; from the structures of social interaction and the co-ordination of language, gesture, and gaze in the Caribbean to the use of plants in ancient China; from information in Iroquoian pottery to signatures and citizenship in contemporary India; from the relationship between genetics and human evolution to research related to crime scene investigation.
