Environmental Anthropology

Environmental anthropology brings together faculty with specialties in the anthropology of science, archeology, heritage studies, medical anthropology, political ecology, and political economy.  Faculty are broadly concerned with the ways that people grapple with political conditions that influence ideas and tensions about land, geography and nature.  As anthropologists, we largely focus on changing human relationships of the world over and throughout time.  Our research and teaching interests include chronicling issues of justice and accessibility posed by environmental resources, assessing new forms of stratification and inequality tied to commodification and various aspects of economy, developing new ways of thinking about interspecies interdependencies, and detailing the historical trajectories (including colonial, imperial, and military) that shape contemporary views about specific landscapes and the broader world.
